Has Intuit Pulled A Fast One With Turbotax 2014?

Intuit turbotax More than a few people are complaining that Intuit has pulled a fast one with their 2014 edition of Turbotax.

The company has reportedly removed the ability to create forms C,D or E unless an additional upgrade fee is paid. The creation of these forms was included in last year’s version of Turbotax and the packaging of Turbotax 2014 does not seem to prominently mention that an upgrade is required to retain the same functionality as was in the prior year version.

The core issue is described by mouseprint.org as:

The full interview sections (Q&As) for filling out Schedule C (self-employment income and all expenses), Schedule D (investments), and Schedule E (rental and partnership income) are no longer in TurboTax Deluxe ($59.99 list). The complete Q&A Schedule D (with importation of brokerage data) and Schedule E are now only available in their “Premier” and higher editions ($89.99), and the full Schedule C is only available in their “Home & Business” version ($99.99).
