I won money in another state I don't live in how do I file that with my taxes

If you live in state A and have lottery winnings in state B, this is the general rule.

 

You file a non-resident state tax return in state B and likely pay some state income tax.

 

You file a resident state tax return in state A and include the lottery winnings because your resident state has a claim on all your earnings.  State A gives you a credit for taxes paid to another state based upon the taxes paid to state B.

 

Both state tax returns can be prepared by TurboTax.
