IRS FAQ 14.5 Electronic Filing (e-file) and TeleFile: TeleFile



What is TeleFile?

TeleFile is an interactive computer program that calculates your taxes and begins the electronic filing process over the phone. IRS automatically sends a special TeleFile package to those who may be eligible to use it. Only those receiving the package can use TeleFile. This year, many taxpayers who filed Form 1040EZ (PDF), Income Tax Return for Single and Joint Filers With No Dependents, or by TeleFile last year will receive a special TeleFile tax package that allows them to file their taxes electronically by phone. TeleFile is easy, fast, and free. It's available 24 hours a day, with nothing to mail in. TeleFile is a great way for students to file their tax returns. Refer to TeleFile, TeleFile, for more information.

Where can I get a TeleFile form?

If you file a paper tax return for the current year and qualify to TeleFile, the IRS should send you a TeleFile package in the mail by January 20th of the following year, which will include your PIN number. The booklet cannot be ordered from the IRS. If you do not qualify, you can still receive all of the benefits that IRS e-file has to offer by using a personal computer or filing through an Authorized IRS e-file Provider.
