State Income Tax Return - State Tax Forms

On efile.com, you can efile one or more state tax returns together from your federal tax return. If you have already filed your federal return elsewhere, you can choose to file only your state return via mail once you have prepared your state return online. Efile.com will guide you through this process.

Can I File Multiple State Tax Returns?

There is no limit to the amount of state tax returns you can prepare and file on efile.com. You can file resident, nonresident, and part-year resident returns for any state.

How Much Does It Cost to Prepare State Returns?

On efile.com, it costs only $19.95 to prepare as many state returns as you need to file (other sites will charge you per state return). This is especially important if you lived in one state and worked in another state, so you have to file more than one state return.

When Do I Need to File a Resident State Tax Return?

You may need to file a tax return for your resident state if your resident state collects income taxes. 

When Do I Need to File Part-Year Resident State Tax Returns?

In general, you are required to file a part-year resident tax return for each state you lived in if: 

  • you moved from one state to another state (file a part-year resident tax return for both states) OR
  • you lived in multiple states (file a part-year resident return for each state)

When Do I Need to File Nonresident State Tax Returns?

You generally need to file a nonresident tax return for each state in which you worked but did not reside. For example, if you lived in one state and worked in another, you will usually need to file a resident return for the state in which you lived and a nonresident return for the state in which you worked.

Here are other situations where you may need to file a nonresident state return: 

  • You earned income in a state that is not your resident state.
  • Your employer incorrectly withheld taxes for a state that is not your resident state.
  • You had gambling winnings in a state that is not your resident state.
  • You owned rental property in a state that is not your resident state.
  • You are a partner in a partnership, or a shareholder in an S-Corporation, that is based in a state that is not your resident state.
  • You received income from an estate or trust that has interest in a state that is not your resident state.

Will I Need to File a Nonresident State Return for My Employer's Resident State?

You do not generally have to file a return for the state where your employer is located unless you also work there. What matters is where you earned the income, not where your employer is based.

Can I Only File My State Return?

Even if you have already filed a federal income tax return, you can still use efile.com to prepare and file any state income tax returns you need. Since state returns cannot be calculated without income information from your federal return, you will need to prepare a federal tax return, but you will not have to efile it or pay for it. Find out how to file only state returns.
