Can I e-file my amended state return?

SOLVEDby TurboTax1038Updated March 29, 2023

It depends on where you live. Most states require taxpayers to paper file amended returns.

TurboTax supports e-filing your amended return in the following states:

  • California
  • North Carolina
  • Colorado
  • Georgia
  • Michigan
  • Montana
  • New York
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Carolina
  • Vermont
  • Wisconsin

You can e-file an amended return in the following states, but not in TurboTax. If you're amending in one of these states, you'll need to print and mail your return or e-file directly with your state.

  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Connecticut
  • District of Columbia
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Mississippi
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Ohio
  • Tennessee
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia

Note: For amendments prior to tax year 2020, you must mail a paper return. While your state may accept e-filed amended returns, TurboTax may still have you mail a paper return. This includes amended California returns.
