How do I amend my state tax return?

by TurboTax Updated about 12 hours ago

If you amend your federal return, the changes will automatically be transferred to your state tax return.  

If you need to amend your state tax return only, select your product below and follow the instructions.

Note: If your TurboTax navigation looks different from what’s described here, learn more.

  1. Sign in to TurboTax.

  6. On the screen Tell us which 2023 return(s) you want to amend, select 2023 state.
