Tax Package Mailing to End Following Growth of e-File

Individual and business taxpayers will no longer receive paper income tax packages in the mail from the IRS. These tax packages contained the forms, schedules and instructions for filing a paper income tax return.

The IRS is taking this step because of the continued growth in electronic filing as well as to help reduce costs.

Paper-filed returns take longer to process, and the paper-to-electronic scanning process often introduces errors.

Plus, the IRS now mandates tax preparers like myself to e-File all returns we prepare.

Therefore, I urge all taxpayers who can to use e-File.

E-filing is completely free for all of my tax clients, always.

If you are dead set on paper filing, you will have to sign an opt-out form in order for me to prepare your tax return.
