Hi, I don't have to do my Florida taxes but for some reason my FL return status is "ready to mail". What can I do?

Because Florida does not have an individual state income tax. The only reason to file a state tax return in Florida is if you have a Florida-located business, rental property, or farm. In that case, a Florida Tangible Personal Property tax return may be due.

I suspect you went through the state interview too fast, because there are warnings that the only personal state income tax is the business personal property tax and gives you the opportunity to not go there.  See the screenshot below.  It shows where, if you said “No”, a FL return would not have been prepared.

See this TT FAQ on how to remove state forms if you do not need them.  If you didn't need the program consider calling TurboTax Support for a refund. See how to get a telephone number for  Turbotax Support here:  https://support.turbotax.intuit.com/contact/. Once you enter a description of the problem, select "call" from the next page. (Do not enter the word "refund" for the description - it will take you to a where's my refund page. If asking about a product refund, use a term such as rebate or allowance.)

(Note:  Telephone numbers are only given when TT support is open.  See this URL for hours of operation.  https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1899263.  Please note that times given are Pacific Time.)
