Can I file my NY state taxes by mail?

You're required to electronically file your return if you meet all three of the following conditions:

  • you use software to prepare your own personal income tax return;
  • your software supports the electronic filing of your return; and
  • you have broadband Internet access.
What you need to know about the e-file mandate
  • The cost of tax preparation software always includes the e-filing service; New York State law prohibits additional charges.
  • You are not required to electronically file if you:
    • download forms from our website,
    • pick up forms at your local library, or
    • order forms from us by phone.
