My Fed taxes were complete in February and eFiled successfully. My State Taxes were not Filed at that time because of problems related to Health Care Exemption Codes that were significantly affecting my refund. Yesterday with the help of Turbo tax On-line specialists I was able to resolve all of these State Tax problems; but now I am unable to Efile the State Taxes separately. I have tried various ways but without success. Turbo Tax always seems to force you to file both federal & State taxes together. I do not want to refile the FederaL Taxes which have already been refunded. What is the solution?
Using the TurboTax desktop editions, in the File section just select E-file. On the following screen select Do not e-file my federal return.
Using the TurboTax online editions see this TurboTax support FAQ for e-filing the state tax return after the federal tax return has been e-filed - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/e-file/help/how-do-i-e-file-my-state-after-i-already-filed-my-fede...

I am not able to e-file my federal return and because it is always rejected, I am also unable to e-file my NY State return. I have checked and re-checked all of the id questions that are asked regarding last years AGI and drivers licenses.
@Laszlo2 Why is it rejecting? A common reason is for the wrong AGI.
When did you file 2018? If it was late in the year try putting in zero for the AGI. And see, https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/rejections/help/what-if-i-entered-the-correct-agi-and-i-m-still-ge...

How to correct the AGI
If you can’t get it to efile you will have to print and mail it.
How to mail a return from the Online version
Be sure to attach copies of your W2s and any 1099s that have withholding on them. You have to mail federal and state in separate envelopes because they go to different places. Get a tracking number from the post office when you mail them for proof of filing.

The AGI is correct. I did not file late last year.
I have double and triple checked the other id questions they need and they are all correct.
You haven't specifically said "why" the Federal is rejecting or provided the rejection error code. Is it because of AGI? Use the AGI from the original 2018 return, and not an amended one (if applicable).
A state return rejects automatically when the Federal is rejected.
You can try downloading a free 2018 tax return transcript at the IRS website if you qualify to open an IRS account there and see what the IRS is showing for your AGI:
