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. In particular, the campaign will suggest small businesses and individuals ask their preparers about e-filing.
"In response, tax professionals should be prepared to answer more client questions about e-file and be ready to increase their capacity to e-file their customers’ returns," said IRS East Coast spokesman Dom LaPonzina.
