TurboTax makes it easy to get your refund faster by offering e-file. Filing your return electronically is convenient and TurboTax does everything for you.
With e-file, there's no need to print or mail anything. It's as simple as a few clicks in TurboTax. Plus, with direct deposit into your bank account, you could have your refund in as fast as 7 days.*
*Update for 2018: The IRS issued more than 9 out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days last year. The same results are expected for 2018 tax returns.
Don't have a bank account? No problem. We'll put your refund on a pre-loaded Visa® debit card that you can use anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted.
E-filing is safe and secure. TurboTax uses the same encryption technology used by banks to e-file your return. That means your information is protected from any unauthorized access while it's electronically sent to the IRS and state agencies.
Need some proof to sleep easier? TurboTax provides an email acknowledgement within 48 hours that the IRS received your return. You can also log on to your TurboTax account and see your current e-file status.
