Turbo tax tries to screw you out of the $19.95 e-file fee for state taxes. Just mail your state taxes in, only e-file federal. The only downside is TurboTax makes it difficult to do it. This is how you make it work:

  • E-file federal don’t file State
  • Once complete click on Print & File again
  • On the first page it will ask if you want to e-file federal, choose file by mail
  • The next screen says it can’t because you’ve submitted already
  • Continue on to print out state paperwork
