When you use desktop software  installed on your own computer you get 5 federal e-files.  There can be a fee for e-filing the state return, which can be avoided by printing and mailing the state return.  However, which tax year are you inquiring about?  You can no longer e-file a 2016 (or earlier) tax return.  E-filing is closed for 2016 returns.  Returns must be printed, signed and mailed.
