How can I change my filing preference from mailing to e-file? I want to go back and choose e-file instead of by mail.

How can I change my filing preference from mailing to e-file? I want to go back and choose e-file instead of by mail.

As long as you haven't already mailed your 2018 paper return, you can switch to the e-filing method (through October 15, 2019)

However, some states now require e-filing, which means the federal and state must be e-filed together.

If you already mailed your return, don't e-file. This can cause problems with the government, including refund delays.

  •  In TurboTax Online, sign into your account.Select File in the left menu.
  • On the Just one more step screen, follow steps 1 and 2 if you haven't already
  • Select the Start button to the right of Step 3.
  • On the Let's get ready to e-file screen, select I want to e-file.
  • Follow the instructions to e-file your return.
