Whether you are entitled to an additional state tax refund depends on the nature of the change which was made to your federal return. For example, if you used the wrong line on the tax tables to figure your tax on your Federal tax return, this may not have an impact on your state tax return.  If, however, the change was made to the amount of your taxable income, it may have an impact on your state tax return.
Contact your state tax office for additional information. It is helpful to have a copy of your tax returns (federal and state) and a copy of the IRS notice when you call.  To access the state you need to direct your question to, please go to our Alphabetical State Index.
