I need to file my state taxes for my refund, but I filed extension for federal because I owe

Since you are not efiling the federal return, you cannot efile the state return, you'll need to select that you'll file by mail for the state return. 

  • Select "File" on the tax timeline.
  • Walk through the steps for finalizing, and under Step 3 if you don't see file by mail selected click the blue text that says "I'd like to change filing methods"
  • Select "I'm not ready to file" for the Federal Return
  • Select "File by mail" for the State return and click Save.
