How Do I Mail My State Tax Return?

Once you print your return, follow the instructions that are printed with your 2017 return to mail the state portion of your return to the state tax office.

Some states have one address for returns that include a payment and a different address for returns that don’t include a payment. Be sure to use the correct address for your situation.
