I have downloaded Turbo tax 2013 and my state (Illinois) will not download (using Windows 8). I also had problems updating TurboTax before starting my federal return and had to download the federal updates manually. My internet connection is ok, I have tried disabling fire walls, and have uninstalled and reinstalled the TurboTax software and I still am not able to download the state return.
After initiating the update I am able to reach the update screen, but the download does not seem to progress. I have waited about 1/2 hour with no progress.
