2013 Taxes: Paper vs. Electronic Filing. Are Taxpayers Making the Switch?


With the advances in technology and software programs, the Federal Government and the states are encouraging taxpayers to file electronically, rather than with the traditional paper forms.

Their argument is that the software programs designed file taxes electronically are bound to prevent mistakes, and will save processing costs.  According to an article in the Boston Globe of March 12, 2013, “The IRS, which stopped automatically mailing out 1040s in 2011, estimates it costs 15 cents to process an electronic return, compared with $3.50 for a paper filing.”

However, regardless of age group or gender, many taxpayers who file their taxes themselves (without the help of a tax preparer or accountant), sometimes find the process not to be user-friendly, and typically resort back to filing with the paper form.

Regardless of whether you file your taxes electronically or via the U.S. Postal Service, it is always important to have a paper copy of your return to keep in a safe place.  There might come a time when electronic files will be 100% accessible without the worry of hackers or crashes, but until that time comes, a keeping hard copy of your taxes is a good safeguard to implement.
