Question and answer
Q: List one benefit and one disadvantage of filing your taxes electronically.
A: I do both, so doing them on-line is a way of double checking that my figures and calculations are correct. I do the pdf fill out forms and then do them on-line. [ If something does not match, I figure out where I what I did wrong. If I am due a refund, I e-file early to I get my refund quickly. If I owe, I put it off until April. It could be free, but I pay $9.95 for them retain details about
my employer and other sources of income or deductions until the following year, so I do not have to fill in that info again. It also keeps track of my cost basis for a non-deductible IRA contribution, for doing IRA to Roth IRA conversions (Form 8606). So for me the benefits of e-filing are double checking everything, quicker refund (if I get one), and ease of doing taxes next year. ]

User: cons: of filing your taxes electronically

Weegy: One benefit of filing your taxes electronically is that you recieve your refund faster than you would if you filed them by mail. [ By mainl, your refund can take up to six weeks to get to you in the mail, but filing electronically you can recieve your refund in ten days by mail and 7 days if you have your refund direct deposited. ]
