ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The IRS is expanding their E-file program in an effort to cut down on filing errors and return refunds faster.

Free File offers 20 different software options that will allow taxpayer with an Adjusted Gross Income of $56,000 or less to E-file their federal tax returns for free. That means 70 percent of all taxpayers can take advantage of the program. H&R Block says tax payers who have questions about the electronic progress can find help at their office or over the phone. They say e-filing cuts down on errors.

"The IRS would prefer Taxes were filed electronically because the error rate goes down from 20 percent on paper filed returns to one percent on E-Filed returns, because normally the E-file software can check for errors as you go through the system," said Clifton Bush, EA, H&R Block District Operations Specialist.

Almost 4.8 million tax returns were filed through Free-File last year. Filing electronically with direct deposit can also get your tax refund returned to you in as few as 10 days.
