Hello, I am filing only a T4A(OAS) and a T4A(P). From everything I've read it should be free?

I even split the couple up to avoid the 'pension splitting' feature only available by paying.

There's nothing else entered or claimed but the T4 OAS and the T4A(P), so what am i missing in it not being free?

**I figured it out! 

When carrying forward from last year's return I got charged with only T4 income.

However, I went to an ad for the FREE software, clicked Get Started, and then made a NEW account.  That let me start off registered with the free software. 

This is because when you log into your old account, and want to start a new return, they don't give you the FREE option.  You have to pick Standard because there's no FREE option.

This just worked and now I don't have to pay for the exact same return.

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.
