More Iowans are heading to the keyboard instead of the mailbox to file their federal tax returns this year. With just about one month to go before the April 15th deadline, I-R-S spokeswoman Chris Moore says they’ve received 673-thousand Iowa returns and expect about one-point-three million. Moore says nearly 80-percent of the returns in so far were filed electronically. She says electronic filing for Iowa has increase about four-percent which Moore says mirrors the national trend. She says the biggest increase is in people who file from home using software they’ve purchased or on the free I-R-S website. She says “more and more people are becoming familiar with computers and more comfortable with using the computers. If you haven’t filed you taxes yet — Moore says now is a good time to be sure you’re ready. She says you should look to see if you have everything you need even if you aren’t ready to file, as you’ll be able to get the paperwork you need before it’s too late. The free-filing on-line site by the way is found at: www-dot-I-R-S-dot-gov (www.irs.gov).
