  1. Why is it taking so long for TurboTax to come up with forms so I can submit my taxes? It is getting very close to the deadline!

  2. I believe Turbo Tax provided incorrect directions when I amended my 2012 CO state tax return. On my original return I had a refund, which I applied to my 2013 estimate. When I amended the return, I had a larger refund, also applied to my 2013 estimate. The instructions told me to send a check to the state along with the amended return for the original filing amount applied to the 2013 estimate, which I did. However, I now realize that since I never received the first “refund”, i should not have sent in the check. So I have over-paid my 2012 state taxes, but am not getting credit for that overpayment in any Turbo Tax calculation. Am I missing something, or are the instructions wrong.?

    1. Hi C D H – Based on what you describe, it could be that you overpaid. Since I can’t see your return, the only way to verify the amount is by contacting the CO Department of Revenue Here’s a link to their contact page As far as TurboTax is concerned, you can enter your overpayment by going to the Federal Taxes Tab, Deductions & Credits, Explore On My Own, scroll down to Estimates and Other Taxes Paid. Then, you can verify the “estimate and overpayment” amount that is applied by looking at line 63 of your federal Form 1040. Hope that helps. Thanks, Karen
