I found very few notes on here from folks who got the pilot paperless program notifications from the IRS as I did. I was looking forward to trying it out.

The TurboTax mini-manual said that after finishing my returns the program would inquire if I had these magic ECN numbers. Never happened to me. I'm still going to have to follow up my return with some paperwork. Did this work for any of you? I'm just curious. I already sent Turbo a "bug" report about this.

It worked fine for us. We filed electronically and did a debit of a bank account to pay what we owed. TurboTax cranked out the standard filing papers, but said we were exempt from having to do the Form for signatures since we were part of the pilot. Shazaammmm! No paper.

Thanks for the feedback. At what point did you enter the ECM numbers? It didn't ask me...

Thanks,
Ken

I entered mine directly on the 1040. The program asked for it near the very end of the process.

I used Tax Cut and it asked for the ECN at the very end, after selecting electronic filing. Everything worked well. I paid with check, so I still had to fill out the 1040V, but almost entirely paperless.

The whole process worked perfectly for me. I received a postcard in the mail way back in Jan. or so which had the ECN number on it. Using turbotax, I was able to file totally electronically and paperless without any follow-up mailings at all. It was really nice. I think I had my refund within 2 weeks auto. deposited into my bank account. And I even used the rebate Intuit was offering for the e-filing, so the whole thing didn't cost me anything.

Ditto here. Filed through TT web, for free because of a deal they were running with fidelity customers. Entered the ECNs at the very end of the process, owed some $$, but had it debited on 4/14. I checked on Friday and the withdrawal had been made. I also filed this way last year, but received a small refund which was deposited directly into my account within 2 weeks of filing. Love this process, wouldn't do it any other way!
