Forms and situations Credit Karma Tax does not support

Credit Karma Tax supports the most-common federal tax forms and schedules. You can check out the complete list of forms we support here.

But we can’t do everything just yet. These are some forms and situations that Credit Karma Tax does not support this year.

What if I can’t file my state return with Credit Karma Tax?

If we don’t support your specific state situation, keep in mind that you can still file your Federal return with Credit Karma Tax.

Form or situation

What it’s for

Part-year state returns

You, or your spouse if married filing jointly, lived in a state for only part of the year.

Multiple state returns

You, or your spouse if married filing jointly, earned income in more than one state last year.

Nonresident state returns

You earned income from a state you weren’t a resident of. This could include wages, rental income, or S-corp or partnership income.

Married filing separately in community property states (state returns)

If you live in a community property state (Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas* or Wisconsin) and you’re filing as married filing separately, we won't be able to help prepare your state tax return. You can still file your federal taxes for free.
