Can I file my Louisiana state taxes after I received my federal refund? MY tax preparer in Mississippi used my old address and instead of a new one

I have been using the same tax preparer for years but two yrs ago I moved out of state. I gave her the new address to use but she continues to use my old state to file in

Can I file my Louisiana state taxes after I received my federal refund? MY tax preparer in Mississippi used my old address and instead of a new one

Since you had your Federal return prepared by someone other than TurboTax, you cannot just file a State return only.  You might want to go to your State's website, most states let you file a return for free.

 

Can I prepare and file just my state return using TurboTax?

 

No. The TurboTax state program is designed to transfer information from your federal return. For this reason, TurboTax state isn't sold as a standalone tax-preparation product.

 

You can use TurboTax to prepare and file your federal return without your statebut not the other way around.

 

If you already filed your federal return outside of TurboTax and just need to do your state, you can either:

  1. Contact your State Department of Revenue or visit their website to use their tax-filing service or download and print out their tax forms, or
  2. Re-create your federal return in the TurboTax software or TurboTax Online without filing it so you can prepare and file your state return using TurboTax
    • You'll need to print and mail your state return, as state returns can't be e-filed on their own

The first option is free; the second option requires paying for both federal and state returns, even though you won't be filing your federal.
