What are the advantages of e-filing?

E-filing has some key benefits over other methods of filing.

Benefits include:

  • Since the IRS doesn't have to re-enter your information into its system, e-filing results in fewer data-entry errors.
  • You receive an acknowledgment that the IRS received your return. Paper returns don't receive an acknowledgment of receipt.
  • You'll receive your refund faster if you e-file your return rather than mailing it.
