Preparing Your State Return

Once you have completed the Federal Q&A process, the next step is to complete your state return.

TaxAct® State Editions become available in January each year. Answer a few state-specific questions and your state return is finished, too.

See the Taxact State Program Release Dates webpage for anticipated release dates.

To prepare your State Return:

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click State on the left to expand, then click Add State. On smaller devices, click in the upper left-hand corner, then choose State.
  2. Select your state from the State return for drop-down, then click Continue.
  3. Answer a few state-specific questions.

To prepare multiple state returns, repeat the steps to select another state from the drop-down, then repeat the process.
