I think I'm filing my state tax wrong. Any suggestions? It keeps acting like I owe the state money and I cant think of why I would?

I think I'm filing my state tax wrong. Any suggestions? It keeps acting like I owe the state money and I cant think of why I would?

I recommend reviewing the following items as a starting point:

  • Were you eligible for a tax credit last year that didn't apply this year
  • Did you have another source of income this year which wasn't there last year?
  • Did you change your job or withholdings?
  • Did you have higher deductions last year than this year? 

Then review the items you had input into your return last year to ensure you are not missing a deduction that you had reported in the past but may not have entered into your return this year.

I think my federal and state were wrong because it said that I don't get a refund and I never showed my w-2 or my 1099

You can review your Federal 1040 or your state tax return in TurboTax Online by following these directions. 

  • Down the left side of the screen, click on Tax Tools.
  • Click on Tools.
  • Under Other helpful links, click on View Tax Summary.
  • Down the left side of the screen, click on State Tax Summary to see the actual tax return that you prepared.
  • Down the left side of the screen, click on Preview My 1040 to see the actual tax return that you prepared.
  • Down the left side of the screen, click Back to return.

You can print or view your full tax return prior to filing after you have paid for the software.
