You need to file a Puerto Rico return, which is not supported in TurboTax.  Please see this website:  Departamento de Hacienda de Puerto Rico

Thanks for the time and answer. I do file the Puerto Rico Tax return, but I need to file the US tax return to get back the amount retained from my paycheck towards income tax. Thats the part I need more info. (what to select) in the turbo tax return.
