State tax filing

If you just made one estimated payment, then was it paid to the IRS or the state taxing authority? All estimated taxes paid during 2018 whether for the federal or state return are listed on the federal return. When you enter the state estimated tax payment, then it is transferred from the federal return to the state return.

  2. Click Tax Tools from the left side of the screen.
  3. Select Tools from the drop-down menu.
  4. Select Topic Search, type State Estimated Payments and click Go.
  5. On the next screen, click Start beside State estimated taxes for 2018.
