Before you start:
- There is not an option to preview the attached PDF file nor to print the attached PDF with the return.
- PDF files are limited in size. The entire file, including PDF attachments, submitted via e-file is limited to 32 MB. A single attachment is limited to 1.5MB.
- PDF files cannot be attached to returns after they are transmitted for e-file.
- For assistance attaching PDF's to 1040 returns see Attaching PDF documents to a 1040 return for e-file
Automatically attaching PDF's when required:
The PDF Auto-Attach feature will attach forms generated by the program that are required to be part of the electronic return as a PDF. This feature works with our diagnostics to generate that form as a PDF, and include with the electronic return when electronically filed.
To see a video demonstration of the Auto-Attach feature watch this short video.
