TurboTax tells me that it is not necessary to file a TN return unless interest and dividend income is over a certain amount (it isn't).  Is it worth it to pay $40 to download state tax return for $40 in the hopes that we might get some kind of credit for a state refund?

State tax filing



If you do not even meet the filing threshold for Tennessee, you would not have anything to file.


TN Hall Tax information


However, if you have another state where you have a filing requirement, then it would make sense to file a state income tax return there if you have any withholdings and could be entitled to a refund.
