TurboTax software is a tax preparation tool, specifically designed for the US and Canadian Tax returns. It has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy for businesses and Individuals to process and fill tax returns electronically. Though it is easy to use, sometimes the user faces TurboTax problems with state returns. If your state return is still showing ‘Started’ when IRS has already accepted a Federal return, you will need to r-submit that state return. The problem usually arises when some of the state forms are not finalized by the tool. This happens when the user attempts to e-file state at the time when he/she is e-filing federal return. Remember a user can only e-file state return once all the forms have been finalized and federal return is accepted.
You can use the below-given instructions to fix the problem:
- First of all, login to your TurboTax account
- Then choose Show on tax home screen. It is next to tax returns and documents
