It is now official, the IRS is now excepting tax returns for 2008!
80 million people used e-file in 2007 (almost 58 percent of all tax returns).
e-file or electronic tax filing has many benefits like:
- Faster Refunds
- Greater Accuracy
- Secure and confidential submission
- No paper return to mail
- File now, pay later
- Quick confirmation
“These are tough times, and e-file is the best way for people to get cash in their pocket quickly,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman. “Filing electronically with direct deposit can get refunds to taxpayers in as few as 10 days.”
IRS e-file meets the needs of nearly all taxpayers, no matter how complicated or simple their returns are. E-file helps taxpayers take advantage of the tax credits available to them to maximize their refunds during these tough economic times.
E-filed tax return information is protected through encryption. Also, taxpayers receive an acknowledgement usually within 48 hours that the IRS has accepted their return.
