    Hello,

    Yes. Our system uses the modernized e-file system, supported by the IRS and all states. When a return is sent, the W-2s and 1099's are attached as a data file. That is what is required. Hope that answers your question.

    So do I need to scan them into PDF to attach them. Last year I entered the info from my 1099 into my return thinking that was enough. Evidently it was for the federal return, but my state said I failed to attach the 1099-R to my return. It had state tax withholding listed on it and Maryland did not credit it to me since I did not attach it to the return. I received a letter saying I owed several thousand dollars and under-withholding penalties. I mailed a hard copy of the 1099-R into the Comptroller's office and am waiting to hear back.
