I live in Tennessee,  close to the Mississippi & Alabama state lines,  so I do tons of multi-state returns.  Tennessee has no state income tax either, but to get the state apportionment schedules to work correctly, Ii have to put the Tennessee wages in the state wages section also. I just put TN for the state and the # 1 in state # column, (or # 2 , etc), the correct wages for my state in that column and -0- in state income tax.  Worked for as long as i have used ProSeries, which is approaching  2 decades.

I don't believe Texas has an income tax--therefore no state id #

Because it is an "error" message, I can't efile?

sorry i have one texas return and he lives in texas.  when e-filing you can un-check error checking but you might want to get other feedback from someone else

Did you enter TX as the state code in the state section of the W-2 and leave the ID # space blank?

If so, and that didn't work, try entering TX and use the federal ID number or enter 9s as the state ID number.

Armpit sniffer. Yup, checked out the help wanted ads and found the job. With my nose, how can I go wrong?

I have e-filed returns with Texas with both nothing in the W-2 section for state and also with putting TX, the Federal ID Number and then -0- for withholding.  If you're not talking about the W-2 you need to remove TX from the Info Worksheet as e-filing. Since there is nothing to e-file it's only Hawaii and Federal you're submitting.
