TurboTax Business is for filing small business tax returns, including C and S corporations, partnerships, estates, trusts, and multi-member LLCs. Single member LLCs that have elected to file as a C or S corporation can also use TurboTax Business.
Sole proprietors and single-member LLCs that have not elected to be taxed as a C or S corporation should use TurboTax Home & Business instead since they are taxed as a disregarded entity on the owner's federal tax return using Schedule C.
Supports Forms 1065 (Partnerships), 1120 (C Corp), 1120S (S Corp), 1041 (Estates & Trusts) and the additional forms that go with them, including Schedule K-1, Form 1096, 1099-Misc, W-2, and W-3.
TurboTax is a software package published by Intuit for preparing federal and state income tax returns. It makes it easy for normal everyday people to prepare their own tax returns by following a step-by-step question-based guide.
In addition to filing tax returns, TurboTax can help those who are self-employed or running small businesses make estimated quarterly tax payments and create W-2s or 1099s for their employees and contractors.
New TurboTax versions are released at the end of each year and only work for filing tax returns for that year. Most versions of TurboTax include federal tax return preparation and free e-file. Many versions also include a state tax return preparation, but the state e-file is usually an extra fee. Users who don't want to pay the extra state return filing fee can print and mail their state return at no additional charge.
There are five main versions of TurboTax: Basic, Deluxe, Premier, Home & Business, and Business. The comparison chart above shows the major features of each version, along with a price comparison of several online retailers.
There are two ways to use TurboTax to do your taxes. You can use the online version or the desktop version. Both versions will allow you to prepare your taxes, but there are some differences, including the price. This article explains the differences between the two products. For most users who need to file a state return in addition to the federal return, we recommend the desktop edition, which is the edition discussed on this page and in the above comparison chart. The overall cost is typically lower for the desktop edition, after taking into account any filing fees or extra preparation fees.
