My Federal has been accepted, however, my Massachusetts state tax just says started, is there something I need to do to send it off?

If you filed your federal and state taxes at the same time, your state taxes will say "Started" until IRS has Accepted or Rejected your tax return. Remember, the IRS did not start processing returns until January 29. If you e-file before then, your return will be saved on TurboTax servers and passed to the IRS when it starts accepting returns on the 29th.

Your state return will not transmit until all the forms and schedules included in the return are available for filing.
