Are Explanation Statements efiled with the return?

Are Explanation Statements (click EXPLAIN box on form) sent with the efiled return? I've read that Itemization Statements don't and Preparer Notes do but I can't find anything about Explanation Statements. Thx.

It WILL be e-filed with return. I called support and she verified for me. She said it may not appear in print like it has gone but that it does get sent. Makes sense since the EXPLAIN button is part of the forms. But you know what they say about assuming things...

Thanks for all your responses. Much appreciated 🙂

Preparer notes go with the return. Doesn't mean that anyone reads them so you get to respond to the CP2000 as well.

If the "explain" is part of the form itself, I think that it is submitted.  Otherwise, no.

I believe only the preparer notes get transmitted.

Armpit sniffer. Yup, checked out the help wanted ads and found the job. With my nose, how can I go wrong?
