I printed my tax return. I have changed my mind and would like to pay for it to be electronically sent. Is there anyway for me to log back in and do this.

When I did my tax with TurboTax free I chose to print my return.  Now I would like to pay and electronically file my Federal and State returns.  Can this be done?  Thanks

Yes, as long as you haven't already mailed your Tax Returns, you can change your mind and e-file them.

In order to change from mailing your Tax Returns to E-Filing your Tax Return, please follow these instructions:

  • Login to your TurboTax Account 
  • Scroll down to the bottom of your page and click on the blue box "Add a State" (You are not actually adding a state but this gets you to the correct menu)
  • Click "File" from the left side of your screen
  • Click "Start" next to Step 3 
  • Click "I'd Like To Change Filing Methods"
  • Choose "E-File" then click "Save"
  • Click "Continue"
  • From here you can walk through the steps to E-File your return(s)
  • Finally, you will come to the screen with the Transmit Returns Now button. This will electronically file your selected returns.

Note: If you have already mailed your Tax Returns, DO NOT E-FIle them as this will just cause confusion with the IRS.
