Can I just file a state return?

You can choose to mail a state return using our software. You can only e-file a state return if you also e-file your federal return using our software.

If you filed your federal return with us, it's easy. You just need to sign in to your account again and go through the state screens to make sure the state return is complete, then go to the Filing Method screen at the end of the application, and click Save and Continue. If your federal return was e-filed using our software and has been accepted by the IRS, our software will automatically e-file only the state tax return without e-filing the federal return.

If you filed your federal return somewhere else, you can still file a state tax return using FreeTaxUSA. You'll need to fill in all of your federal tax information as shown on the federal tax return you already mailed or e-filed since the federal information is the starting point for state returns. Make sure the federal tax return on your account matches the federal tax return you mailed or e-filed already. On the Filing Method screen, choose to mail your federal return. Your state return will need to be mailed. The software will prompt you to mail your federal return, but you can ignore that if you have already filed your federal tax return.
