In order to e-file a state only return, first you must mark both the federal and the state return for electronic filing. This is because state only e-files "piggyback" with the federal return. The federal return will not be processed and the IRS will forward the state return to the state.
To electronically file a state only return, from the Main Menu of TaxSlayer Pro select:
- Transmit Electronic Return(s)
- If the client is not already listed on the transmission table, select Add Client
- Click the check box in the State Only column for the client
- If there is more than one state return, you will be prompted to select the state(s) to e-file
- Select Transmit
Once the state has processed the return, you can pick up the acknowledgement by selecting Receive Acknowledgements Only from the E-File Main Menu.
