I owe state taxes. Can I pay from my federal refund through turbotax without sending in a check to pay for state taxes?

I owe state taxes. Can I pay from my federal refund through turbotax without sending in a check to pay for state taxes?

Unfortunately that is not possible.

That's because the IRS and state tax departments each maintain their own, separate tax collection systems.

This means you can't apply your federal refund to pay off your state taxes, nor the other way around.

Likewise, if you're filing more than one state return, you can't use the refund from one state to pay off another state.
