What is E-Filing or Electronic Filing?
When the tax preparer completes the preparation of your tax return, the information is filed directly with the IRS via the internet. The return is accepted by the IRS in hours. If mailed in, it can take up to eight weeks for the return to be processed by the IRS. By E-Filing with direct deposit, you can normally get your refund in days instead of several weeks. You will receive a hard copy of your tax return for your records in the traditional format. The form 8879 is signed by the taxpayer. The IRS will acknowledge receipt of your return so that you know it has been filed on time.
