I reached by five return limit. I have one more to do and it requires efiling for the NYS return. I can't print and mail it. Do I have to buy a 2nd turbotax software?

You do not have to e-file the last NY return. You only have to e-file a New York return if "your software supports the electronic filing of your return." The software does not support e-filing of a 6th return, so you do not have to e-file it.

Buying another copy of TurboTax will not allow you to exceed the 5 e-file limit.
