Before anyone asks, I usually do e-filing for both state and federal, but this question is pretty specific and the background is not really the point...
So, allow me to get to it:
If filing by mail-in and I am filing a State Tax Return, do I need to include a copy of the Federal 1040 form?
This is for the state of Missouri.
The 1040-State is obviously needed, along with other supporting forms, but do I need to include a copy of the Federal 1040?
In this case, the return is a very simple and straightforward one with nothing complicated, but I am having trouble finding any specific references online for some reason for this seemingly very simple question.
I am sure the wise crowd here at Finance forum would look at this and say, "duh!" but I really don't know the answer and need a definite answer and hopefully with references too.
Found the answer: If you itemize, then you do need to include page 1 and 2 of Federal form 1040, plus schedule A.
