Advantages of E-Filing

 

E-filing has some key benefits over other methods of filing, including:

  • The IRS doesn’t have to re-enter your information into its system. So, e-filing results in fewer data-entry errors.
  • You receive an acknowledgment that the IRS received your return. The IRS doesn’t send an acknowledgment when it receives paper returns.
  • You’ll receive your refund faster if you e-file your return rather than mailing it.

If you owe the IRS, you can ask the IRS to electronically withdraw the money you owe directly from your bank account. You can decide when the IRS withdraws the money –up to the last minute on the filing deadline, even if you filed your return earlier.
