  3. Under 2018 click on "Add a State." (We are not actually adding a state, but need to get back to the page to upgrade to PLUS.) 

  4. Click "upgrade" on from the left menu. (If it is greyed out, you already upgraded and can close out of there.) 

  5. Now, click on "Tax Tools" from the left menu. 

  6. Click "Print Center." 

  7. Select "Print This year's Return." (Not Prior year's return or you will get knocked out of the return.)
