The speed with which your return can be sent, processed, and a refund sent to you is much better when you file your federal return electronically. The IRS is also able to correct your information if there happens to be a missed calculation on the return. Ten days is a standard turn-around if you file this way and request direct deposit into a checking account.

The IRS maintains strict security on their transferred communications and feels your information is entirely safe filing electronically. And once your return is received by the IRS your tax preparer or tax preparation software, like TurboTax or TaxAct, will let you know it was received. Then you can monitor its progress to know when your refund will be coming.

Finally, if you do happen to owe taxes, you can e-file immediately when your return is complete and wait until the end of the tax season to send the IRS the amount due. And state returns are often able to be transmitted with the same benefits you will enjoy from your federal tax electronic filing.
