Do I have to mail my w2 with my state return?

I am mailing in my returns.

I know I have to mail my W2 with my federal return.  Do I have to mail my W2 with my state return?  (I dont believe I mailed my W2 with my state last year and no issues)

Yes, when you mail a tax return--federal or state--you are supposed to attach a copy of any document showing tax withheld like your W-2 or 1099R.  Look on the left side of the printed out tax return--does it say to attach your W-2 or 1099R?

@xmasbaby0 federal return does ask to attach W2.  State return does not ask to attach W2.

The instructions for the California State Tax returns says it does not need it. For the Federal you do need to attach Copy B.

The forms for the 2020 filings no longer have this on the left side of the page.
