I can print my federal return but not my state return. Where can I find it?

When I download the return I just filed to print, only the federal shows up.

I'll tell you 3 ways to print.  If the first 2 don't have the state return, you'll need to use the more complicated method.

Log into your account and go the 2016 Tax Timeline
Scroll to "some things you can do".   You should be able to download/print the PDF, which is a basic version "as filed."  Does that have what you need?

If the regular PDF doesn't have what you need, there should also be a link there for "download all forms and worksheets" .   Does that second larger PDF have what you need?

If not, try this alternate method which is to open the return and print from the PRINT CENTER:

  • In the 2016 Tax Timeline, go to Some things you can do.
  • Choose Add a State.  (you don't really add one; that's just to get the return to open up.)
  • Once the return is open, then click on MY ACCOUNT up at the top.
  • Then choose PRINT CENTER.
  • Choose to print/save/view.  You may have a choice for a PDF "as filed" and one with "all forms and worksheets".  I usually save both.
NOTE:  Do NOT use this method to open a return to make changes to an already-filed return (one that has actually been mailed or efiled.)   If you later need to make changes, you have to go through the formal amending process, and your return must start off exactly as originally filed.

Did you pay for the state return and did you efile both returns?  Have they been accepted?

Yes, I completed both and paid for both.  The federal has been accepted but the state is pending acceptance.  I assumed that acceptance would not prevent me from printing what I filed.
