Benefits of Filing Paper Tax Returns

 

Filing a paper return has some benefits over e-filing, including:

  • It’s familiar.
  • It’s comprehensive.
  • It’s easy to review for errors. You also can easily find income or deduction amounts on a prior-year return.
  • You can easily make copies of your return to give to financial institutions when applying for a loan or a home mortgage.

Even if you e-file, you should print a copy of your return for your records.
