I got the Basic version of TurboTax because my parents don't have anything complicated to claim. I don't see a way to enter property taxes. Do I need to upgrade?

I got the Basic version of TurboTax because my parents don't have anything complicated to claim.  I don't see a way to enter property taxes for the house my mother owns.  Is this a feature only available in Standard and up?

Answer

Hello, only certain provinces. Ontario and Manitoba are the only provinces that still allow you to enter this information. Using EasyStep, it will be visible under the left hand navigation of the Provincial tab. If you click on the provincial tab and continue through the EasyStep, you'll eventually get to a page that will allow you to enter it. If you are in forms mode it will be under the provincial form associated with your province. To get to that, there is a button on the top bar labeled "Provincial". This feature is available for all versions of TurboTax.


Hope this helps.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
