E-file is the way to go.
That's next on Tax Break.

The number of taxpayers filing paper tax returns has been dropping each year, and for good reason. There's an alternative that's easy and safe.
Electronic filing, or e-file, is the surest way to submit an accurate and complete tax return to the IRS. If there are any errors or omissions on an e-filed return, the IRS will kick it back to you so it can be corrected and resubmitted quickly and easily. For example, your return will be kicked back if it is missing Social Security numbers, or required schedules. And the IRS protects your information with an extraordinarily high level of encryption technology.
Maybe the best advantage of e-filing is those who are due refunds will almost certainly be able to get their hands on their money faster than those who drop their returns into the mailbox. The IRS says it can turn around refunds from e-filed returns in less than 21 days.
More than 80 percent of individual taxpayers now file electronically.
