STEP 12: DO YOU REALLY NEED A PAPER FORM?
Taxpayers who pay someone else to prepare their returns probably do not use the income tax return booklets mailed to them each year. If you do not need a booklet mailed next year, check the appropriate box above the signature line.
Taxpayers who electronically filed their returns (either with the federal return or alone) will not receive a booklet next year. This will help conserve natural resources and reduce printing costs.
If you e-file, you should receive your refund in two weeks or less.
Paper returns take up to 16 weeks to process.
