Why my refund sea ready for email

Why my refund sea ready for email

It means you selected the File by Mail option instead of e-file or your return is not eligible for e-filing. You will need to print and mail your return if you want to file a paper return or if your return is not eligible to e-file.

If you meant to select the File by Mail option and your return is eligible to e-file, please see this TurboTax FAQ for instructions:
