Do you have to pay to file your state taxes

But WHY do I have to pay for my state taxes now?

 

It stands to reason that if I have to pay for your deluxe service that I shouldn't have to pay extra for something which would ordinarily no cost anything, or at the very least have the option to select which services I choose individually.

 

To that end, customers should be able to degrade from Deluxe to free if they so choose WITHOUT having to clear and restart.

Y'all are sneaky b***tards.  I can't believe I just paid $40 dollars to receive less service. I hate the feeling of being punked. Not that the other companies would be more honest, but for ethics sake I have to switch for next year. Can I make a new account without the deluxe?

Why do I have to pay $50 to submit state taxes if I chose the Delux for federal. What is the difference between the state free edition and this one. Something feels odd here..

Do you have to pay to file your state taxes

The Free edition of TurboTax Online is only for "simple" tax returns, without any additional schedules.  If you don't qualify for the Free federal tax return, you can't file a free state tax return.

Do you have to pay to file your state taxes

I paid $45 for the Arizona state tax version in TurboTax, why am I being charged $25 to e-file AZ state taxes? That should be in stated in big bold letters that I'll be charged at e-filing before purchasing the state tax version. I've been a loyal Turbotax hard copy buyer for years and years now. I'm a little upset at not being told about the filing fee before the state purchase.

Which product are you using? Most desktop products don't charge to download one state but there is an e-file fee which you can avoid if you mail your state tax return. Please see this for more information: Is there a fee to e-file my state taxes in the TurboTax CD/Download software?
