If I e-file my federal and state taxes, is there any reason I still need to mail a paper return?

If I e-file my federal and state taxes, is there any reason I still need to mail a paper return?

 

I'm using H&R Block Premium and after I competed the E-filing for both federal and state, it moved me to the "Print and File" section.  I didn't think I needed to send anything in via the mail if I filed electronically.  I'm getting a refund from federal and paid what I owe to state electronically.  Didn't think I needed to mail anything in this case.  Correct?

 

Thanks.

Hello, markg8087, and welcome to the community.

 

If you e-filed your return, you would not need to mail any forms.  You didn't happen to notice if there was an e-file confirmation number after you completed the filing process, did you?  I am relatively sure that would still show up if you log into your account.  If there is an e-file confirmation number, you're all set.

 

Hope that helps!

While you don't need to mail the return if it's been successfully e-filed, you should print a copy of your return (either on paper or to a digital copy like a .pdf) for your records.
