My state return says that I am not eligible for electronic filing, how can I fix it?

How do I check if I have made an error that causes this to happen?

Why would it say I am not eligible to file my state taxes

@Fotbalmom47, may I ask which state is it? Here are a couple of possibilities for a state e-file roadblock:

  • Did you already e-file the Federal return first separately? If so, what is it's e-file status? If e-filed separately, you cannot e-file the state return until the Federal return has been accepted.
  • Or perhaps one of your state forms is not yet available for e-filing. Open your return interview and go through the REVIEW tab. Do you get any messages about why you can't e-file it?

You can also check the FAQ link provided below to see if all your state forms are available:

It is possible all of the forms required for your state are not yet available. Please see this Turbo Tax FAQ on State forms availability for personal.
