Some of the benefits of using electronic filing include automatic calculation of the return which reduces possible errors; scheduled payments up to the due date; and confirmation of the filing. Not only are these methods convenient, but you will also get your refund faster when you file electronically.
In addition, electronic filing is also available for federal income tax returns. Free tax preparation and e-filing services are offered by some private sector firms through a partnership with the IRS. Some of these services also include free state filing.
This year, over 2.8 million 2009 returns have been filed electronically.
