Why in tax state is nothing return

I'm not sure of your question, but if you mean you worked in one state (the tax state) and you didn't get anything back, this may help.

 

Income gets reported to the state it's earned in. Generally, this means out-of-state workers have to file a return for their work state in addition to their resident state.

 

Typically, the taxpayer would file a nonresident state return for the state they worked in and pay that state's tax. They would then take a credit for taxes paid on their resident state return. TurboTax easily handles nonresident state returns.

If you are trying to prepare your state income tax return, log back into TurboTax.

 

  1. Start your state income tax return by selecting State in the black panel on the left hand side of your screen when logged into TurboTax.
  2. This will take you to a screen titled Let's get your state taxes done right.  Click continue on this screen.
  3. You will see the following screen titled Status of your state returns.  If you do not see your state listed, select Add Another State on the gray box at the bottom.  

Add state

 

Proceed through the screens and be sure to answer each question carefully.  

 

After you go through this entire section, you will be taken to a state review.  

 

TurboTax will walk you through the process of filing your tax returns once you are ready to proceed.
