What is E-Filing?
E-filing lets you transfer your tax information directly from your computer to the IRS.
The advantages of e-filing include:
- The IRS receives your return almost instantly, unlike a mailed paper return.
- E-filed returns contain fewer errors. The IRS doesn’t need to re-enter your tax information in its system.
- If you expect a refund, you’ll receive your refund check within three weeks.Your refund will come sooner if you deposit your refund directly into your bank account. If you file a paper return, it usually takes four to eight weeks to receive a refund check.
