No -- you misunderstood.

 

Your state tax due cannot be paid from your federal refund. 

It is not possible to pay your state tax due from your federal refund, nor is it possible to pay a federal tax due from a state refund.  The federal and state treasuries are completely separate from each other.  You may have seen a TurboTax summary of your federal and state amounts that confused you into thinking one was “paying” the other.  It is not. The ONLY thing you can pay for from a federal refund is your TurboTax fees if you chose that option.  

 

 

 

 If you have federal tax due you can pay by mailing your payment with the 1040V voucher, (which has the address printed on it, having the payment taken out of a designated bank account, or you can pay directly on the IRS website.

You must pay your state tax due using the state’s preferred method of receiving payment.  For most states that will be by making a payment to the state’s own tax website, or by mailing a check or money order.

North Carolina State Taxes subtract my Federal Taxes from my State refund

The Federal owed  was paid by myself using the efile to be draft from my back account. When trying to file my State Taxes the Turbo Tax software has deducted the amount owe to Federal too. How can I reach Turbo Tax support. The stupid automation will not allow me to speak with a real person.
