Can I file 2020 State income tax form now?

I received a letter from the Sate requesting I submit my 2020 tax forms. How do I do that?

Did you fie at all (Federal) for 2020?

If yes, did you use TurboTax?

Can I file 2020 State income tax form now?

IF you used TurboTax to prepare your 2020 federal return you can use the downloaded software to prepare a 2020 state return on a full PC or Mac and mail it in.   If you did not use TT for 2020, you should see if you can get the 2020 state forms to prepare them by hand from the state's website.

 

 You will be able to access the return you started by using the exact same account and user ID that you used when you started it.   But you can no longer use online software for any further changes.

 

Start a 2022 return and enter some personal information so that the menu on the left opens up and allows you to access your 2020 return.

 

Online tax preparation and e-filing for 2020returns is now permanently closed.

  

Now it is too late to use online software or to e-file. If you have any changes/corrections at all to make to your 2020 return, you now have to complete it using desktop software, which you must download to a full PC or Mac  (not to a mobile device).Then you need to print, sign and mail it.

If you already paid for your online software you can ask customer support for a download of the desktop software.

 

They are available from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Pacific time

If you are getting a refund, there is no penalty for filing late.  If you owe tax due, then file and pay the amount due as shown on the Form 1040, but expect a bill later from the IRS for the penalty and interest you will owe.  Only the IRS will calculate this—TurboTax will not calculate it.

 

 

When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s.  Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS/state received the return.

Federal and state returns must be in separate envelopes and they are mailed to different addresses.  Read the mailing instructions that print with your tax return carefully so you mail them to the right addresses.
