When were you separated and have you applied for (or received) a VA disability rating?

Can part of this be done through Turbo Tax or all documentation has to be mailed to the IRS?

You can do all of this in TurboTax but will have to file your return by mail so you can attach the cover letter and VA Award

So fill it out on TurboTax and print it to file the return by mail? Is that correct? Also what does the cover letter look like?

This is my first time filing since getting my severance, are you saying that after I do everything online and submit my return through TurboTax, i also have to print it out and mail it to the IRS? Also is there a place to submit my supporting documents online? Or is that why print and send?
