Does efiling increase your audit risk?

No, e-filing should not increase your audit risk.  The IRS Audit selection is not dependent on your method of filing.  The IRS Discriminant Function System compares incoming tax returns and assigns them a score. Returns with high scores are more likely to get pulled for an audit than those with low scores.
