Electronic Filing of Tax Returns Now Preferred by Most Taxpayers

Posted: Updated:

More and more taxpayers are entering the digital age in filing their returns.
 
The Internal Revenue Service estimates that more than 80% of tax returns are now filed electronically using home computers and tax preparation software. H&R Block senior tax adviser Richard Gartland says his company's software includes online chat or telephone support, so you can still get help if you need it.

The software eliminates or minimizes mistakes and simplifies e-filing. Gartland says the IRS also has an e-file service that's free "for certain levels of income and simpler returns."
 
E-filing is the fastest, safest and most accurate way to go. It gets refunds a lot quicker, too -- especially with direct deposit sending the money straight into your bank account.  (AP)
