She says the number of Iowans filing their returns electronically is up.Fifty-two percent of Iowans thus far have filed returns electronically, that’s up from 38-percent last year. The national average is 46-percent. Migazzi says those working to meet the deadline should be careful not to make some common mistakes. Migazzi says make sure to have your social-security number on your tax return. Migazzi says there is plenty of help available if you get stumped.
