You can create state-only and city-only electronic files without the federal return. This option is useful when you are not electronically filing the federal return or when you must re-file the state return due to errors.

To suppress the federal return, enter X in the Suppress the creation of: Federal electronic file when only filing a state return/extension electronically field in Screen ELF.

Note: You also have options for suppressing the automatic creation of state electronic returns when electronically filing only a federal return.
