In Conclusion

Individual filers have but two choices to file their returns:

  1. E-File
  2. Snail Mail

E-File is by far the fastest method of filing your Individual 1040 form. It’s by far faster than the traditional snail mail route.

Mail – In contrast to E-File you can still mail in your individual 1040 form and therefore wait what seems like an eternity to obtain status information, consequently we highly recommend taking advantage of our E-Filing service which is free as part of our individual tax preparation service.
