Choosing print and mail 

To change to the filing method, take the following steps: 

  1. Click the File tab at the top of the screen. 
  2. Click Next until you see this screen that reads, “Meet your new best friend, free e-filing.” 
  3. By clicking Next, you’ll automatically set the return for e-filing. If you want to print and mail, you should check the checkbox there. 

Print and mail instructions 

If you choose print and mail as your filing option, we’ll include mailing instructions when you print the return. This will include where to mail the return and what to include with it. 
You’ll need to attach copies of your W-2s, 1099s, 1098s, and any other tax forms that have federal withholdings. The forms that need to be attached will be printed with the mailing instructions. 

  • The IRS mailing address to use depends on what 1040 form you file, where you live, and whether you’re sending a payment with your tax return. 
  • The IRS provides a website that will help you determine what address to use.  


  • The state mailing address will be printed on the cover page of your state return. If you can’t find this information, please contact your state Department of Revenue to get the correct mailing address. 
  • The mailing address for the state return is listed on the instruction page of the printed copy of the return. Use these instructions to view the mailing address: 
    • 1. Find your account in the OLAT. 
    • 2. Choose the account and click View PDF. 
    • 3. Find the State Tax Return Filing Instructions page. The address is listed in the Mailing Address section.
