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.
As end-of-year approaches, taxes owed can become a major headache. Plan ahead by considering 529 Tax Deductions and other end-of-year savings options.
