I didn't sign my tax returns before sending it... what should I do?

If you e-filed it there is not a physical signature--you "sign" by entering your AGI or PIN.   If you mailed it without signing the paper form, then you should wait and see if the IRS mails it back to you for a signature.   Do not file again.

If you mailed the tax return, the IRS will send the return back to you for signing.

 

If you e-filed the tax return there is nothing you need to sign as it was signed electronically when you entered the 2019 AGI on the 2020 tax return.

We still don't know what "send" means.   Please state outright exactly how you filed your return.  Did you efile the return (transmitted it to the IRS electronically), or did you choose to print out the return and file the paper forms by postal mail?
