Can't transfer completed Federal tax to California tax




I'm having problem transferring my completed Federal tax to start my California return.  I clicked on the start icon next to California and it asked to download and install the state.  After that has been done, I am still not able to transfer it.  It just routed me back to the same step where I need to "download and install" again.  I even restarted the computer couple of times and still have no luck.


Please help!

Can't transfer completed Federal tax to California tax

I can't upload my federal tax info into Connecticut.   This year I  must file taxes in two States.   New York and Connecticut.   I can upload into my New York tax program but not the Connecticut.     The software send in a endless loop.   You need to check for a state update.   Run the upstate.   Select CT tax program again.   I states you must check for an update.


It very frustrating not to be able to call a technician directly!!!     This is the simplest tax forms I have done in 30 years!   I will go back to doing it by hand.   It only a few forms now.  No the 10 to 15 forms from 2 years ago.
