The 1040e

1040e It's easy, accurate and fast. So why would you file your taxes any other way? 1040e Old fashioned paper tax forms have been around for decades, but it might be time for them to go the way of the dodo. Who wants to wait for weeks to get their check in the mail when you can just efile your tax return electronically with the IRS and start enjoying your refund in as little as 7 days. 1040e If you consider the money the IRS holds on to while you wait for your refund as an interest free loan, then you’ll realize that you are losing money. No one other than the IRS can get an interest free loan and that doesn’t seem fair, does it? Enter the internet age. Commercial companies have been moving online for years now - when was the last time you've mailed a check or received a paper statement from your bank? Now, even the government sites are starting to get with the program and are offering quick and easy efile to everyone. Here are a few reasons why I switched to efile; maybe it’s time you do to!
