Married filing jointly with separate states

SKC2021
Level 2

I have a married couple in Virginia filing jointly for the Federal return. The spouse moved to WEst Virginia on Jan 29th last year and lived there all year. They need to file separate state returns. I have Proseries basic, can someone please help me with the state returns?

ProSeries does not handle this well at all.  In the past I've created a joint Federal return and a 2nd file return for the separate state.  There is a feature in ProSeries to do split returns so you don't have to input all the same info.  But remember, on the 2nd state you're only e-filing the state return, not the Federal.
