The TaxAct® Desktop program can automatically attach state returns for state modules that have been installed on your computer.

If you do not need to file for a state that has been attached to your return, you may simply choose not to complete the state interview or file the return. You may also choose to remove this state; however, you must also disable the auto-attach feature or the state will be added back when you open the program again.

You may follow the instructions below to remove the state and to disable the auto-attach feature.

Removing a State Return

  1. Click on Return located in the upper program menu.
  2. Click on State.
  3. Then click Select State.
  4. To delete the state return(s), simply uncheck the state(s) you wish to remove.
  5. Click OK.

Disabling the Auto-Attach Feature

  1. Launch your TaxAct Program.
  2. Click on Tools in the top program menu.
  3. Click on Options.
  4. Remove the check-mark next to "Automatically attach all states when creating new returns or opening existing returns."
  5. Click OK.

When you next open your program, the state returns will not be automatically attached, but you will be asked if you would like to add any states that have been installed on your computer.
