How Does e-Filing Work?

It's really pretty simple and the software will walk you through everything.  The steps include:

  1. Prepare your taxes using a tax program.

  2. Make sure to respond to any alerts of error/omission and transmit the return (the software will walk you through this process).

  3. The file is converted to IRS format and transmitted to the Internal Revenue Service.

  4. After checking the return the IRS will send notification as to whether the return was accepted or rejected.

  5. Once your return has been accepted by the IRS you can use the tax program site to check it's status.

  6. In less than 3 weeks you'll have your return - 2 weeks if you use Direct Deposit.  If you owe money you may pay by mailing a check, using a credit card, or by automatic withdrawal from your bank account.
