What if I accidentally downloaded the wrong state?

SOLVEDby TurboTax194Updated December 13, 2023

Don't worry, it happens. Here's how to delete a state return in the TurboTax for Windows Desktop software:

  1. With your return open in TurboTax, switch to Forms Mode by selecting the Forms icon
  2. From the File menu, choose Remove State Return. (This won't delete your state program, just the state tax return)
  3. Select the return you want to delete and then select Remove
  4. Answer Yes to confirm
  5. If you want to start a new state return, select the Step-by-Step icon, and then select the State Taxes tab

If you inadvertently downloaded the wrong state software and are still having issues, please contact us and we'll take care of you.
