About e-file

How does e-file work?

Federal/State e-file allows the electronic filing of both Federal and state income tax returns at the same time. The electronic filing software places your Federal and state return data in separate packets. These packets are transmitted to the IRS in one taxpayer "envelope." The IRS functions as an electronic post office for the participant state, who receives and processes the state electronic return.

How will using this option benefit me?

Fast Refund - Your tax return is processed quickly which means at the IRS, and in most states, you can have your refund direct deposited into your checking or savings account.

Fast Processing - Your refund is received twice as fast. The IRS and participating states can process your e-file returns much more quickly than those that are filed on paper.

More Accurate - Tax preparation software eliminates errors you may make, and e-file processing of the Federal and state return eliminates most errors.

Proof of Filing - You can meet your Federal and state tax obligation at the same time. The IRS and state agency will let you know that your return has been received and accepted.

Convenience - At IRS and in most states you can file early and pay any balance due by April 15.
