Ok ... to efile the fed AND state login then  scroll down and click on ADD A STATE to access the account then complete the FILE tab until you click on the big orange TRANSMIT NOW button. add a state 2018.PNG

Are you going to mail federal?  If you mail federal you have to mail state, even N.Y.  Ignore the warning that you have to efile N.Y.

Well if I do send it by mail is there a penalty? And do I just need to send in my it-2s? Or all of the ITs? Like it-2, IT-201and IT-215

If you efile there is nothing to mail in.  That's one of the big benefits with Efiling.

Wait a minute ... are you completing the 2018 return using the downloaded program ???   If to BOTH the fed & state MUST be mailed in and you must attach the W-2 forms plus any other form that has withholding on it.  If you do not have the required papers then get another copy from the employer.

You need your 2018 AGI to efile 2019. The AGI is on 2018 1040 line 7. If you filed a Joint return you use the same AGI for each spouse.

How to find the AGI.

Well now we got down to the brass tacks ... the AGI from the 2018 return is not always the total of the wages on a W-2.
