If you see the message "You will need to complete the filing step first" in Step 3 above, then you will need to return to the blue Filing tab and complete that process far enough to print the return. You do not need to go to the end of the filing steps and submit the return at this time. Return to the instructions above if you need to print the return again. Alternatively you can click on Preview Paper Return (Non-Printable version).
