E-file Now: It’s Fast, Easy and Often Free
Ok, my fellow tax preparers may hate me on this post however.....
Here is a word from the Goodfellas of the IRS:
The IRS also urged taxpayers to choose the speed and convenience of electronic filing. IRS e-file is fast, accurate and secure, making it an ideal option for those rushing to meet the Oct. 15 deadline. The tax agency verifies receipt of an e-filed return, and people who file electronically make fewer mistakes too.
Everyone can use Free File, either the brand-name software, offered by the IRS’s commercial partners to individuals and families with incomes of $57,000 or less, or online fillable forms, the electronic version of IRS paper forms available to taxpayers at all income levels.
Taxpayers who purchase their own software can also choose e-file, and most paid tax preparers are now required to file their clients’ returns electronically.
Anyone expecting a refund can get it sooner by choosing direct deposit. Taxpayers can choose to have their refunds deposited into as many as three accounts. See Form 8888 for details.
Don't tell anyone that I told you about this information. I'm just kidding, there is nothing wrong with saving money. However if you make over $57,001, please come see me to do your tax returns (lol)!
