Instructions on How to E-file a Federal and PA Tax Return

February 24, 2023

Both Pennsylvania and the federal government give individual taxpayers the option to file their taxes electronically, also known as E-filing.

There are a few benefits to E-filing your tax returns, including:

  • Faster because it is electronically transmitted directly to the taxing authorities’ computer system
  • Safer because the filing cannot get lost in the mail
  • More secure
  • More convenient, you don’t have to wait on line at the post office if you are too close to the filing deadline
  • If your E-file submission is rejected, then the IRS will email the filer with a link you can use to see an explanation and resolve the issue
