State Income Tax Returns, Dates, Refunds

Due to IRS and state policy, most state tax returns can only be e-filed together with the IRS tax return with the exception of California. This is not an eFile.com policy, but an IRS/state regulation which is based on data sharing between the IRS and the state(s). Having said that, you can prepare only state return(s) on eFile.com, but not eFileIT by itself without also e-filing the IRS return as well.

Thus, here on eFile.com, you can prepare and e-file your 2022 IRS and state taxes together. The IRS tax return filing deadline is April 18, 2023 and most state returns are due at the same time. Some states do have their own deadline, however; for specific state tax return deadlines, click on the state(s) below. We recommend e-filing both your federal and state returns together on eFile.com. That way, you do not have to mail your state return separately.

Only $32

Only on eFile.com can you prepare and e-file ALL41 states plus the District of Columbia—state income tax returns for only $32.

Dare to Compare eFile.com vs. H&R Block® vs. TurboTax®.

Compared to 10 State Returns on TurboTax® = $500!

Income Taxes by State

Not all state income tax returns and tax rates are created equally. For example, there are nine states which don't impose a state income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. New Hampshire and Tennessee, however, do tax investment income from taxable dividends and interest over a certain amount. Why worry about how to properly file your state return? If you prepare and eFile your state tax return(s) on eFile.com, you can be assured that your taxes will be done right.
