IRS Recommends E-Filing

The IRS recommends e-filing tax returns since processing paper tax returns can take several weeks longer.

Cutting it close – the mailbox rule

Can you mail your tax return on the same day that it’s due?

Yes, a document delivered by U.S. mail (USPS) is considered timely if (1) the envelope is properly addressed to the recipient with sufficient postage, (2) the postmark date falls on or before the deadline, and (3) the document is mailed on or before that date.

If sending via private delivery services, only the following services are designated by the IRS to meet the “timely mailing as timely/filing/paying” rule:
