Hi yurtfamily,

 

 

 

Welcome to the H&R Block community.

 

You'll answer questions in the beginning of the interview in the software about your resident state.  Also, your W-2 will show where you worked.  The appropriate state returns should generate from that automatically as you fill out the federal return.

 

 

If you have any other questions I'll be glad to help.

appreciate the info and reply...

 

related query....needing 2 state returns, did I mess up and install 1 before the interviews? as now the program wants to charge me 39.95 for ANOTHER state return...

having the DELUXE version, doesn't that get me STATE filing (FREE)...even if I need 2 state returns?

Yurtfamily,

 

The deluxe program allows you to e-file your federal for free, but not your state.

thank you!!

 

is there an 'upgrade' that would make needing 2 states better then buying the other one for 39.95

 

hey , don't mean to be cheap...but guess WHO ELSE will be getting $$ from me!??! Smiley Happy

hopefully not TOO MUCH!

Yurtfamily,

 

Unfortunately even with the premium and/or self-employed software the cost of state is still the same. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
