If you want to file just a federal return, and not file a state return(s), you need to make sure that your state return(s) are not selected for electronic filing at the time of filing your return. From the My Account screen of your account, click on the "E-file" tab located on the navigation bar. We will ask you about e-Filing all returns that have been created within your account (both federal and any state). Simply click on "Skip Now / File Later" for each state return you do not wish to electronically file at this time. Continue through the e-file process until you have received confirmation that your return has been submitted.
If you have already started the e-file process, simply click Cancel and return to the Main Menu or you can restart the e-file process.
