Many state forms are not finalized so you cannot e-file your state return until they are ready.  There are also a number of federal forms that are not yet finalized so you have to wait for them.  Click on Review to see what forms you still need in order to e-file. 

 There really should be no rush to file--the IRS will not be accepting/rejecting returns until January 28.  Many tax documents such as W-2's, 1099's, 1098's, etc. have not been mailed out yet. You may not have everything you need until mid-February.  If you file too early and then find out another important document just arrived in your mailbox, you have to go through the agony of amending your return--which takes about 4 months.

If you file your federal return before you file your state return, you will not be able to file your state return until your federal return has been accepted by the IRS.  Then you will need to log back in to your return and file the state yourself—TurboTax will not file it automatically.
