Hal_Al has mentioned that turbotax does not efile the RITA with ohio state taxes, but rather it just prints out the forms and asks you to mail them. I assumed that TurboTax would prompt me to do this but it didn't. How do I know if my RITA has been sent to the right place?
Also, my school district was filed in the same way with my ohio taxes. Will they be sent electronically or do i need to print them?
If TurboTax has not sent these forms then likely I will just use the websites provided directly by ohio to file instead of mailing everything.
Among the many pages that TurboTax (TT) makes available for your electronic or paper files, is one called State filing instructions (it's in addition to the federal filing instructions). It will tell you if the school district return was electronically filed (it usually is but not always) and that you have to mail the city return

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
- Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
- Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
- Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
- Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
- Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
