SA online returns slump in the US

US taxman reports an almost 10% decline in the number of taxpayers filing their self-assessment returns online

Despite a drive to increase the proportion of taxpayers filing
self-assessment returns online, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has reported
a marked decrease in electronic submissions.

The IRS has recorded a 10% drop in online filing during the current reporting
period, according to
webcpa.com

The IRS will be introducing a Free Fillable Tax Forms service allowing more
people to submit their SA returns free of charge over the internet.

Figures released by the IRS reveal tax advisors are submitting 9.64% less
electronic filing compared to last season.

UK taxpayers filed self assessment forms online in record numbers this year,
at 5.8m – beating last year’s total by 2m.
