best tax software if you don't owe?

Registered users do not see advertisement
I have been using TurboTax for the last few years, which I actually got at a big discount through my broker. However, the broker is no longer offering this discount.

More importantly, I will have negative income this year, because of capital losses, so it seems somewhat absurd to pay for tax software in this situation.

However, because all my losses are from investments, I will have a lot of entries of Schedule D forms, and I also need to fill out a k-1 for one instrument, and the other only software I've done this with and am familiar with is Turbotax. In the past I have always downloaded the desktop version so that I can import 1099s from my brokerage accounts directly into the program.

under these circumstances would it be best for me to stick with Turbotax since it's what I know, or is there a relatively trouble free way I could switch to another and save money, and if so which software would be recommended for someone whose income is all related to market investments?
