Washington (Dec. 23, 2002) -- In an effort to increase the surge of practitioners choosing to e-file for the upcoming season, the Internal Revenue Service is kicking off a national communications program in mid-January.As part of the push, the agency will attempt to convince individuals, small businesses and tax practitioners about the benefits of e-filing, including fast refunds, ease of use, accuracy and security.
