Attach another state's return to efiled state return

To get credit for taxes paid in another state, Minnesota requires a copy of the tax return filed with the other state.  If I efile in that state, will TurboTax automatically attach a copy to my efiled Minnesota return?  If I file on paper in the second state, can I attach a copy of that return to my efiled Minnesota return?

Yes, you can file up to 5 states in TurboTax Online. If you are paper filing the other state, however, you will not be able to attach the other state return to your e-filed Minnesota return. 

That may be different if the other state was Michigan or North Dakota in your case: What is a state reciprocal agreement?

Otherwise, for filing a paper return, see:

Attach another state's return to efiled state return

If I efile both the Minnesota and the other state--Colorado--returns, will TurboTax attach a copy of the Colorado return to the Minnesota return?  (Minnesota requires this to get credit for the Colorado tax.)

Attach another state's return to efiled state return

For 2019returens, I filed Fed, MA and DE tax returns on Turbo Tax. DE needed to see a copy of the MA one. There was no way to attach the file and Turbo Tax did not send the MA one to DE even though it was required. I  have the same situation this year. What is the status? Will Turbo Tax provide the MA tax return to DE? Is there somewhere where I need to check to tell it to do this step?

You can efile. When you file in more than one state, TurboTax includes all necessary copies in the efile.

 

All returns are included in the e-file package to each state.  All of the information necessary is  provided in the efile package..
