Internal Revenue Service Continues to See E-file Grow in 2006: New Resources Help More Tax Payers Get Online

Share Article

Growth of efile for income tax filings prompts expansion of online resources both on the Internal Revenue Service website as well as independent provider sites. More tax payers are flocking online to keep up with changes in tax regulations.

The Internal Revenue Service has recently announced that it is rapidly expanding e-filing efforts. Last year, more than half of over 135 million individual tax returns were filed with efile. The primary benefit of efile is that individuals see their tax refunds in their bank accounts on average more than twice as fast as with traditional paper methods. Also, with the Internal Revenue Service ceasing its file-by-phone Telefile service this past August, even more tax payers are encouraged to use online tax preparation methods(http://www.irs.com/efile/providers.htm).

With the expansion of e-filing, independent online tax resource, IRS.com, has also expanded its efforts to guide both individual and business taxpayers to the tax information and help available across the Internet. “There are many new issues that tax payers have to deal with in the 2006 income tax season, from determining Alternative Minimum Tax requirements to new legislation on hurricane and disaster relief, and we want to ensure that each tax payer is matched with resources that fit their needs. Our specific goal for 2006 is to ensure that no one is afraid to file their taxes online.” said IRS.com representative Robert Hoult. Both the Internal Revenue Service and IRS.com have expanded their online resources to help tax payers find tax return information quickly and easily.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS.gov) has redesigned its 1040 Central Website to quickly compile recent changes in the federal tax code as well provide easy access to the most common forms and recent tax issues. IRS.com has expanded its online effort to match taxpayers with specific tax resources. From individual tax payers looking to self-submit to those requiring specific professional filing help, IRS.com helps the user to quickly determine their needs and find resources they need to file a swift and accurate return.

For further information, IRS.com maintains numerous resources for both the individual and business taxpayer. From online e-filing services available on the Internet, to personal tax software (http://www.irs.com/tax-software/info.htm) all the way to individualized professional tax help, IRS.com can direct you to the appropriate tax resource.
