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 Preview My 1040 to see the actual tax return that you prepared.

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