IRS says Apply Now If You Want To E-File: Tax professionals who would like to e-file tax returns for their clients during 2003 should file their applications soon, says the Internal Revenue Service. The form must be submitted by those new to the e-file program and by those who need to update prior applications.

"Tax professionals know that their clients want to e-file because it’s fast, error-free and provides proof that the IRS has received it," said Terry Lutes, director of the Electronic Tax Administration. "This filing season, more than 99 percent of the forms and schedules related to Form 1040 can be filed electronically."
