2020 Tax Return Checklist in 2021

Tax Return Checklist

Step 1: Before you start efiling, download or print this page as you collect the forms, receipts, documents, etc. necessary to prepare and efile your taxes. If you miss an important form on your tax return, such as income or deduction, you will have to prepare a Tax Amendment.  In order to avoid the hassles of a tax amendment, we at eFile.com strongly recommend to not efile your 2020 Taxes before February 1, 2021. For the simple reason, all 2020 Forms need to be mailed to you before February 1, 2021. However, if an employer(s) do not provide you your W-2 forms or the issuer(s) of a 1099 Forms do not mail them to you on time, contact them and request them. 

Step 2: View these important pre-eFile considerations e.g. Taxstimate your taxes, simple Tax Tools, etc.
