How do I finish my return?

Click on Review.  When that is completed the program should take you to the File section.


You complete your tax return by finishing all 3 Steps in the File section. In Step 3, to e-file your tax return, you must click on the large Orange button labeled "Transmit my returns now".

After completing the File section and e-filing your tax return you will receive two emails from TurboTax. The first email when your tax return was transmitted and the second email when the tax return has either been accepted or rejected.


Use this TurboTax website to check the status of an e-filed return and if it was either accepted or rejected -
If accepted by the IRS use the federal tax refund website to check the refund status -
If accepted by the state use this TurboTax support FAQ to check the state tax refund status -

The Review can be found in two places.


If you are in a State interview, the "State Review" can be found on the upper right under the magnifying glass. Note that this may do the Review only for the current state.


At any time, you can look to the left and see Review. Click on this to do your Final Review, although TurboTax may tell you to do your state review first.




When you finish a state interview, TurboTax will ask you if you want to run your state review. It will ask you this every time, just in case you changed something.


For the Federal Review, look at the top menu bar for Review.
