I filed e-filed my federal taxes with Turbo, but now I want to file my state. Can I still do this on Turbo or do I need to print off the taxes and send them?

If your Federal return was accepted, you can e-file your State return. 

How do I e-file my state after I already filed my federal?

 

Although you can e-file your federal and state taxes together, if you choose to e-file your federal first, you'll have to wait until that return has been accepted before you can e-file your state.

 

If your federal hasn't been accepted, or you printed and mailed it, you won't be able to e-file your state but you can print and mail a paper return.

 

Married filers: If you e-filed your federal using the joint married status, but you want to e-file your state returns separately, only one of you will be able to e-file. The other must paper-file their state return.

Yes, you can e-file your state return after your federal return has been e-filed and accepted. The link below will provide the details.
