Recently, the IRS issued a new law about eFiling. The IRS has drastically lowered the threshold for paper returns to 10 or more, so chances are, you’re going to need to eFile. But don’t worry. Adams Tax Forms Helper has you covered! Here’s a step-by-step guide about Federal eFiling.

Once you’ve entered or imported all your data into Adams® Tax Forms Helper® and you’re satisfied your forms are correct, you can begin to eFile.

Review your data

Don’t overlook this important step! Once your file is transferred electronically, all associated files are locked for editing. You can no longer make any changes in the Tax Forms Helper to your form or your payer record.

Give your data a thorough review to ensure names and addresses are correct and your data is entered or updated correctly for the current tax season. You can always use our TIN matching service to help you check the accuracy of your filings!

(Of course, we can help youeFile a correction later if needed.)

eFile your forms

From the dashboard, go to “Filings.”

Next, check the box or boxes of the filing(s) you’d like to eFile. Here, we’re selecting a 1099-MISC to eFile.

Next, click the Checkout & File button.

Next, check the box or boxes that you want to submit for federal eFiling.

TIP: If you plan to eFile your state, it’s easiest to do so now. eFiling your state later in a separate transaction will require several extra steps.)

Enter your Checkout information.

Next, enter your credit card info and click “Complete Order.”

You’ll also receive an email confirming your order.

Note: it may take up to 4 weeks for the IRS to process returns during periods of high demand.

You’ve eFiled your forms to federal agencies. Nice work!

Remember, your eFiling date remains the same, no matter when the IRS processes your forms, so you’re done!

Feel free to celebrate the end of another successful tax season!
