While filing your federal and your state return at the same time can reduce tax time stress, we understand that sometimes, you just need to file your state tax return later.  Unless you live in the states of Oklahoma and Kansas (where the tax agencies require that your federal return and your state return are efiled at the same time) you can prepare and efile your state return by itself. Here’s how:

  1. Sign in to your eSmart Tax account.
  2. If you used eSmart Tax to file your federal tax return for this year, you will be automatically taken to the My Account page.
  3. On the My Account Page, choose the “Add State” button.
  4. Use our guided questions process to fill out our state tax forms and file your return.
