Are the forms listed on the general information page the ones that will transmit in an electronic filing?

What forms will transmit on an electronic filing?

My understanding is that the forms themselves do not transmit - just the calculations (similar to an IRS transcript).  The IRS does not have the actual completed forms when a return is e-filed.

Virtually all forms are eligible to for e-file. Even those that you need to do in a pdf and attach to the return can be efiled. There are a few exceptions and they will be noted in the diagnostics before you file and you may have to paper file in that fairly rare instance. 

Here's wishing you many Happy Returns
