E-filing Questions and Answers
What, exactly, is e-filing?
E-filing (electronic filing) is a paperless, secure alternative to printing and mailing your federal and state tax returns. TurboTax uses industry-standard encryption technology to electronically transmit your returns.
In most cases, e-filed tax returns are processed more quickly than mailed returns; always good news, especially if you're expecting a refund.
E-filing is also "greener" than paper-filing – in addition to saving paper and envelopes, you save gas driving to post office!
