If it says "printed" at the Tax Home, it means it hasn't yet been filed, unless you printed and mailed it. How do you want to file it? Do you want to print, sign, date, and file by mail? Or do you want to open up your return and efile?
Have you already efiled the Federal return, and if so, has it been accepted?
You can either efile the Federal and state returns at the same time, or if you already efiled the Federal first, it has to be accepted before you can efile the state return.
Here's how to get back in to efile:
- Log into your account, and at the Tax Home or in the section "Your Tax Returns & Documents" for 2019, look for a link "Add a State."
- Click on "Add a State." (That doesn't really add one; that's just to open the return.)
- Once the return is open, go through the REVIEW section to be sure everything is still in order.
- Then go to the FILE section and choose/change the filing method to efile.
- If you already efiled the Federal previously, and it's been accepted, choose to only efile the state return.
- Then continue on through all the remaining screens, and at the final step click a big orange button "Transmit Returns Now."
If you already efiled the Federal return, and it was accepted, then don't make any changes in the Federal side when you open the return back up. If it's necessary to do so, report back first.
Also, I should have asked, and you didn't say, but are you referring to a current 2019 state return? My answers above assume you were referring to a 2019 state return. If you are referring to a prior-year state return, then the answer would be completely different and require another approach, since a prior-year return cannot be efiled.
