You can file up to 5 returns on TT Deluxe with one free state download.  You can do your taxes, and then when it comes to your son's TR, start his return and TT will guide you to pay for his State, if it sees it is different than yours.  Or, if you do his first, it will ask if that is the one you want for free.  Either way, you get one State for free (and can use it for more than one person or family in the State) and when it comes time to download then next State, TT will ask you to pay for it.  You can use your own Intuit account to pay for it, even though it is his TR, and then just ask him to reimburse you, if you want.

I My fed/state and My son's. TT charged me $19.99 for both States. Is this right? I thought I get 1 state free? What's Up BK

Correction above: I filed both Fed/State for my son and myself. TT charged 19.99 for each CA filing. I thought I'd get ONE CA filing for free and pay 19.99 for the other? BK440

The State is free but TT charges $19.99 to e-file the return. If you choose to e-file both returns, you pay $19.99 per return. You could avoid the charge by printing and mailing the return, but e-filling is faster and easier, but not free.
If you were paying for a state, say your son lives in AZ, and you in CA, before you started his AZ return, TT would ask you to pay for the download.
