Ran out of e-files

I needed to admend my taxes and I have to admend 2 states, 1 state is New York that only allows efile , but I'm out of efiles! Now what ?  I do have another copy of turbotax but thats now asking that I repurchase my 1 of my states , since it has 1 free.  Any ideas how to avoid repurchasing my NY state tax? 

This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

New York state does not require a tax return to be e-filed if the software that is being used does not support e-filing of the tax return.

Go to this New York website for the e-file mandate for individual taxpayers - https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/efile/efile_mandate_for_individuals.htm

New York prefers e-filed returns, but there are certain circumstances that make it necessary for you to file your NY return by mail and the state DOES allow mailed returns.    If you could not or did not e-file your federal return then your NY return cannot be e-filed.   It has to be mailed.   It is not possible to e-file any state return if the federal return was not e-filed and accepted by the IRS.

thanks - I originally efiled everything; this question is mostly about the part that I have to re-purchase the NY download if I want to efile.

The five e-file restrictions are on original returns not amendments. You should be able to e-file an amendment for every return you e-filed original. Returns are not part of the e-file restriction, only the federal returns have the e-file restriction.
