If you are using TurboTax Online you can only prepare and file one return per account. If you need to prepare another return, another account will need to be used/created.

If you are using TurboTax Desktop you can prepare and e-file up to 5 federal returns and you can prepare 1 state return (there is an additional fee to e-file the state return).

The Desktop CD/Download program can prepare unlimited returns and efile 5 for free.  The rest you can print and mail.  You get one free state PROGRAM download to prepare unlimited state returns (for the same state).  But each state return is 19.99 or 24.99 to efile but you can print and mail state for free.

If you want to switch to the Desktop program we can tell you how to move your online return to it to continue in the Desktop program.  You can buy the Desktop program here
