Not necessarily.  If you entered it into your federal return, it will roll over into your state return.   Each state has different rules for the inclusion of cancelled debt.   The amount may be taxable on your federal return but not on your state return and vice versa.  You will need to check with your state's Department of Revenue to verify the proper tax treatment of your debt cancellation on your state tax return.

Thanks for the reply. What confused me is when  I added it into the federal it said "You may have to add the amount of your debt  forgiveness on your state return" And then in the state section there is a  question about "Additions to federal income". So if there is nothing in it, I dont add the amount of the debt forgiveness correct?
