Why IRS E-File?

IRS e-file enables taxpayers to file their individual, business and information returns electronically. More and more taxpayers are choosing IRS e-file because their returns are processed faster with fewer errors. This means quicker refunds and less contact with the IRS. Plus, the IRS acknowledges receipt of IRS e-filed returns that gives taxpayers proof of filing. The electronic payment options let you and your clients file early and either electronically schedule a payment for a future date (paying by direct debit) or delay out of pocket expenses (paying by credit card). As taxpayer demand for IRS e-file grows, there are many ways you can meet the expectations of your clients and participate in this important trend as an Authorized IRS e-file Provider.
