How do i through turbo tax file a state extension?

It depends on which state you are referring to.  In the program, every state takes you a different path to get to the extension screen.  Here are the steps:

 

In TurboTax online,

  • After you sign in to your account, select Pick up where you left off
  • To your left, select State and follow prompts
  • The extension screen usually appears towards the end of the filing process.  

For more information, see here State extension

How do i through turbo tax file a state extension?

I have 2 extensions to file. Our disabled son has a small refund due but due to injury I can't get both ours or his taxes filed.  I already applied for an extension for his, but now it won't allow me to apply for an extension for my wife's earnings, as it keeps popping up that "Looks like you already applied for an extension" statement repeatedly.  I'm at my wits end trying to get this filed!!!  The tax files for both his & my wife's & my files are totally different returns so how in the heck do I get this electronically filed buy midnight??????

When I click the link to Easy Extension it just takes me to a page saying "Looks like you already applied for an extension" I did but that was just federal. I still need to do the state and there seems to be no link for it.

From my experience, once you've filed Fed the state is automatic.  At least that's what I did a couple of years ago.  You might call your state tax department just to be sure that is accurate for your state.
