The Internal Revenue Service is gearing up for the start of tax filing season. Tax booklets are already in the mail to many Wisconsinites, and IRS spokesman Christopher Miller says it's never too early to start getting things organized for tax time.
Whether you do your own taxes or have somebody else prepare them, Miller says a growing number of Wisconsinites are expected to use e-file options. Of the over 2.7 million tax returns that will be filed in the state this year, Miller says nearly 71% are expected to be done electronically.
There are also several new features and tax breaks to be aware of this year. Among them, a tax refund for telephone excise taxes and the ability to have refunds direct deposited in to several accounts.
Tax Day this year is Monday, April 16th.
