- Click File > Open Return and select the return you wish to work with (please note that each return must have a different file name on your computer). Click Open if necessary.
- Click Return > State > Select State and make sure ONLY the state(s) you wish to have in this return are checked, then click Ok
- Click File > Save Return As and make sure the file name at the bottom of the dialog box is as you expect (and different from the other return), then click Save
