I am not worried, just wanting to hasten my refund.
I am due refund on both state and federal returns.

I realized on the day after dropping them in the mail that I did not sign either one. I know they will be returned to me for this reason.

Knowing this, should I just reprint, sign and re-mail before getting the former ones back?

Or is it better to wait to get the first ones back and then redo them?

If I reprint everything and resend before obtaining back the originals, I would need to ask my office to reprint new W2's.

I would be more concerned about this if I owed money, but since it is refunds, then it is only a matter of time for all to get caught up regardless of what I do.

i would play the game. if you do as you asked the federal and state worker bees will become confused and disoriented which extend the time needed to get your refunds.

Don't confuse them IRS folks....

Wait until your original unsigned forms are returned


Didn't know anyone used Snail Mail for State/Federal Returns any more

So many on-line sources.....IRS has one as do the States


Is it time for your medication or mine?

For amended returns you have no choice, or at least in my case.

D3500 you are going to be waiting a LONG time to get your return back. The IRS acknowledged they received my return in June/2020. The acknowledgement came in January. They still have not reviewed it. I would call the IRS and ask them what you should do. Yes, they answer the phone. Yes, the workers are pleasant and knowledgeable.

You can call them, but I really wouldn't expect a lot from that. They are knowledgeable and friendly, but might not be able to do a lot for you in this case. Eventually they'll send you back some paperwork for signature. It's not a huge deal, but you're not likely to get your return any time soon (sorry). Don't confuse things by sending them again unless you call them and they tell you to do that. It has the potential to trigger fraud alerts and further delay your return.

Yea, I will wait and let it go through the process.
It's not a whole lot of money... 207 fed/ 143 state so it is not that big of a deal.

I am more upset at myself for not signing.
I am old school and still do taxes manually (turbotax) and still mail it in. I still balance my checkbook by hand, in pencil to the penny every month. I still mail in my mortgage by check.

My support services (printers, etc.) are at my work office of which I only visit every 2 or 3 weeks. I make a trip into town for groceries and provisions and to check the post office box on those trips.
Getting my taxes was intended to be one of these trips into town (which was last Friday.) I was rushing to get it in the envelope and was more focused on getting it sealed, stamped and in the box.

Haste makes waste. I know better.

It is so much more convenient to do it all on line. Have been doing taxes that way for years, more than happy with that way.
If you do it the Luddite way, you do your paper work drop it into the abyss known as the Post Office and wait. Is it lost, was it accepted, is everything copacetic? I don't know, anything can be happening. At some point in the future, three weeks a month two months, some unknown length of time you get either a check, a letter or your file retuned.
Online I submit it, within a few hours I get notification that the IRS has accepted the file, within usually a couple of weeks, this year it was only about 8 days I get notification of a pending deposit into my account. Easy-Peasy

I can't imagine doing much by snail mail any more. With online banking, bill paying, etc., you get instant notification that everything went through AND you have proof. I agree with Pitch-if you mail it you don't have any way to track it unless you pay for POD or POS. At this point I don't think either way is "safer". If they're gonna get ya they're gonna get ya. TurboTax is very easy to use, as are most online payment systems.

I would just sit and wait at this point. And wait. And wait.

Do not remail them. They will mail you forms asking for your signature. BUT, they are still processing 2019 paper returns, so who knows when they will sent it back, but it will happen sometime in the future.

OP here...

Interesting results: I received the refund check from the state several weeks ago, but today received the notice from the feds that I need to sign the return! I will sign it and get it back in the mail and stand fast again.

I am surprised that the state return got processed without a signature!
