Can I e-file?
- If you are a resident alien, you can e-file using one of the popular tax preparation packages or the IRS tax preparation service if you qualify. If you have a complicated tax return, you may need to use a paid tax preparer for assistance but you may be able to e-file that tax return.
- If you are a nonresident alien, you cannot e-file. If you do, you may be overstating your deductions and paying less in taxes than you are obligated for as a nonresident alien.
