Taxpayers in the US have turned to online tax lodgement in their droves
rather than use the traditional pencil and paper method after the Internal
Revenue Service discontinued its TeleFile service.
Statistics just released showed that the percentage of electronically filed
returns increased, alongside a big increase in home computer use.
By early March 39.5 million US taxpayers have already filed online out of a
total of 54 million tax returns filed so far this year, representing 73% of the
total returns, the IRS said.
Just 3 million people used TeleFile a year ago prompting the IRS to shut it
‘The home computer is increasingly replacing the paper tax form,’ said IRS
commissioner Mark Everson, in a statement.
