How many state returns can I prepare in TurboTax Online?
TurboTax Online lets you prepare and e-file (or paper-file) up to five state returns per federal tax return.
If you need to prepare returns in six or more states, consider the TurboTax CD/Download software instead. Although the software only lets you e-file up to 3 states per federal return, you can prepare and paper-file as many states as you want.
Tip: When preparing returns in multiple states, it's best to do your nonresident and/or part-year resident state returns first, and your resident state last.
