Typically, when you buy a CD or Download the Software onto your computer, there is an additional $20 fee to file your State Return (Federal is usually free). When you use TT Online, both Federal and State returns can be E-Filed for free.

In summation, the only real deal seems to be TurboTax basic ( if that's all one requires) thru Newegg. Unless any better deals for Basic come up in the next couple of days I'm going to order it from Newegg using my $10 coupon.
Just my personal observations: Advertising for what edition of Turbotax one needs is somewhat misleading. One example is the suggestion that if you have a rental property you should get the Premier version. This may be true for special cases and or/if you want guidance in that respect. Otherwise If you read the 1040 booklet it's easy to determine at a glance if you need additional schedules or forms - or not. Well I have a rental property, and Basic works fine using Schedule E (included). Also I am in a separtely distinct Limited Partnership that only needs Schedule E as well. My wife if working towards her MS degree and the proper forms are in Basic as well. So are Social Security and Retirement and Annuity payments, etc.
Obviously the best way to determine what you need is to compare what forms are offered for each TT edition and to look at your last year's taxes to see what forms you used. If nothing a has changed then go with the edition that has only what you previously used. If there are changes do a quick check to see what new forms and schedules are needed.
One place to see a list of forms for each edition is here . You'll need to click on the "Learn more" link in each product box and then click on "Included Forms."
I hope this helps some people in making their decision.

|nytrinks||I tried code and received same email message as others - I have 2 states and 1 fed and when I tried to do online without codes and basic it was going to cost me $100 to file. I am going to try H&R through beehive link noted the other day or contact them to discount at least 35% through Bank of America|

I bought one last year so my question is : can I use the last year version installed Turbo tax on my computer for this year so I don't have to buy a new one ?
