Tax Forms, Starting this year, the tax forms from the Internal Revenue Service to send by post is plus’’ET is instead urging taxpayers to file electronically to ensure accurate returns and faster refunds.
“Electronic filing is the norm in today’s world,” said David Williams, IRS executives. “Seventy percent of all returns filed by individuals are filed electronically. We hope that rise. ”
Paper forms will still be available in post offices and some libraries.
Taxpayers can electronically file a tax return, with commercial software or through IRS Free File. IRS Free File allows taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes up to 58,000 and uses the free software brand to guide the process of tax preparation.
“Taxpayers can choose from a variety of software that will help them through the process of taxpayers using various forms of interviewing techniques to obtain information to prepare the tax return,” Williams said during a conference call the last week. “It does not require them to acquire specialized knowledge of tax preparation.”
Those with higher incomes can use Free File online forms to fill, which manage the maths, but provide less guidance than most software. For more information, see www.freefile.irs.gov.
Electronic filing is considered the best way to get quick refunds and ensure accurate returns. The IRS said it takes less than two weeks to process a return e-file, but as long as four to six weeks to process a paper return.
“We recognize that there are many taxpayers who are struggling with economic circumstances empty,” Williams said. “Offering a free way to prepare and file your taxes is a service of the IRS can provide to help them.”
(AP) – The early season tax used to be heralded by the arrival of the “forms impôt”dans e-mail.
The Internal Revenue Service decided this year not to automatically mail to taxpayers, individuals and businesses. “It’s a sign of the times,” said Terry Lemons, IRS chief spokesman. “More people are going electronic. We are interested in saving taxpayers money.”
He said that the organization realizes that not everyone has access to the Internet or computers. “We believe that most people will have options for obtaining this information,” he said.
Forms will be available in many public libraries, post offices and other community sites. They can also be ordered from the IRS website, www.irs.gov. In addition, there are programs such as Volunteer Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Tips for seniors, said Lemons.
Kathy Pickering, executive director of the Institute of Tax Block H & R, said the decision against the mass distribution of forms has another advantage. “With the late adoption of the tax bill, the IRS does not need to send forms that were obsolete,” she said. “It provided them with agility.”
Congress passed a tax bill that included extending the tax cuts of the Bush era, at a post-election session that ended just before Christmas.
Lemons said only 8 percent of taxpayers tax packages mailed paper last year. These people were sent last fall postcards informing them of the decision against sending the tax form mass and tell them where they could obtain the required forms. Yet some may have missed the postcard.
