2290 Instructions for Paper filing

Paper filing is a little bit harder then e-filing because there is no one to call for help if you get confused. You can easily find instructions for paper filing but the basics are simple.

Fill in the paper form, and mail it to the IRS with your check or money order for the amount due. Then it’s a waiting game. It could easily take the IRS up to 4-8 weeks to return a Stamped Schedule 1 in the mail.
