Desktop Program Selecting States For Multiple Returns

Please follow the steps below to select a state for each return you have created in the TaxAct® Desktop program.

  1. Click File > Open Return and select the return you wish to work with. Click Open if necessary.
    Note. Each return must have a different file name on your computer.
  2. Click Return > State > Add/Remove State and make sure ONLY the state(s) you wish to have in this return are checked, then click OK.
  3. 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.
  4. Repeat steps 2 through 4 above, selecting a different return each time.

Once you have completed these steps, each return should only contain the state(s) you selected in step 2 above.
