How do I print my state tax return and mail?

I selected the print to mail option originally and the state forms printed with the words e-file only do not mail. Now the print to mail option is not available at all.

The option you mentioned was not available for 2019 filing.

I don't want to pay $50 for a $22 refund.  But I have no where to print the State return.  Please help

How do I print my state tax return and mail?

When I go through the process, it does take me to print returns.  I was able to print the federal return, but the state return form is nowhere to be found.  Only the file by mail instructions page.  I called TT to find out why but connected to a computer assistant telling me that I must upgrade to get an answer.  Is this how TT gets you to spend money?  I rather for TT to tell me that the service is not free than being deceived.

To access your current or prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

 

When you sign onto your online account and land on the Tax Home web page, scroll down and click on Add a state. 

This will take you back to the 2019 online tax return.

Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  Then click on Print, save or preview this year's return.  Choose the option Include government and TurboTax worksheets

Thank you for your quick reply.  I am making progress.  I followed your instructions and got to the page offering 3 print options. 1) Just my return 2) Include government worksheets 3) Include government and TT worksheets.

When I click the options 1 and 2, only the summary page 1 of 1 appears.  When I click the option 3, only the government worksheets appear.  What am I doing wrong?

That should have worked and given you both the Federal and State tax return to include all the worksheets.

Have you filed the 2019 federal tax return and if so has the federal tax return been accepted by the IRS?

How do I print my state tax return and mail?

I was able to download state tax return forms by the way you described but they say for e-file only do not mail. How do I change the state tax option to mail? I have set federal to mail and still my state is stuck at e-file only.

How do I print my state tax return and mail?

This does not work.. Step 1 requires payment for federal AND state, but I do not want to pay to file state. I want to print it out and mail it in like Turbo Tax used to allow me to do. Your directions appear to only work if you are getting a refund.

@Penchant There is no fee to e-file your return. The fee is for the software to prepare your State return and or Federal. So you would be charged for your state regardless if you file by mail or e-file. You would have to pay your TurboTax fees to be able to print Federal or State returns out.
