Why am I being asked to purchase my free (first) state?
Have you updated your software? Your Free State
program is included when you update your software, it is called State Prep, it
eliminates the need to download your state download separately in
TurboTax. See the following for more informationhttp://turbotax.intuit.com/support/iq/Update-Product/What-s-in-the--State-Prep--update-/GEN12799.html
Once you update your software click on the State Taxes tab & your state should be showing.

I didn't do anything to upgrade. I closed TurboTax and when I reopened it, it showed Premier but it still wants to charge me for the state download.
