Was your e-file accepted?

Or rejected?
did you get confirmation?

Efile accepted

So that means - your paper return will be rejected - and you will receive a letter about that later - that could take 6-8 weeks after it was mailed.

Looks as the processing for your paper return was delayed - and that was good for your situation.

If the tax return you e-filed is correct - you would not need to worry.

Retain a copy of the return that you e-filed.

You mean I do not have to worry.

Yes - your e-filed that return was accepted - I think that is correct return - and that is the one you want to be accepted.

So you did all correctly.

You have confirmation that it was accepted.

So far that part is done.

Your paper return will be rejected because the IRS will not accept another return after it was already accepted - and you will receive a letter about that later.

But so far - you are good.
