I need to enter a state tax voucher payment on my state tax return

You have paid state estimated taxes and have to enter your payment(s) on your tax return.

You can enter the estimated taxes you paid by following these steps:

  • In TurboTax, open your tax return
  • Click on Federal in the left-hand column, then Deductions & Credits on top of the screen
  • Scroll down to All tax breaks, locate the section named Estimates and Other Taxes Paid and click Show more
  • Click on Start next to Estimated Tax Payments
  • On the next page, click Start next to State estimated taxes for 2018 (see attached screenshot)
