What is the deal with efiling?

efile My Taxes. What Happens?

efiling is excellent. No forms to print. No W2’s to attach. Not stamps to buy plus you usually will electronically have your refund deposited in your personal checking or savings account within 7-11 business days. It sure beats waiting until the cow come home for your refund. It is all about you and your money.

How do I know the IRS accepted my efile?

Within two business days of filing your income taxes online, you will receive an email with information about your federal tax return and if it was accepted or rejected by the IRS. If you don’t get an email, you can go back to your online software or if you are using Tax online software you will get instructions there on what to do.

What if my efile is rejected?

If your efile is rejected – no need to panic and jump out the window. The IRS will provide you with information as to why you were rejected. It is usually a small error like incorrect social security number, birth date not matching your name. Also double check your bank information. An incorrect checking account number can trigger a reject file. We don’t want that. We want our money. If you cannot figure out the correction a helpful IRS customer service representative
(yes, I said helpful and IRS in one sentence) can get you on track. You can contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.

So you can Go Green and get your refund faster with efile. Using an online tax prep service like only makes your tax life easier.
