IRS Mandates Electronic Filing of Tax Returns

Beginning in 2011, the IRS is moving into the digital age by requiring that all returns prepared by professionals be filed electronically. As a result, Reese Henry will be changing the tax return filing process that we have historically used to accommodate the IRS' mandate.

After everything is completed, you'll receive a complete file copy of your return as you always have. However, instead of also receiving the government filing copies to mail to the IRS and the state, we will include an electronic filing authorization form that you will be required to sign after you have finished reviewing your return. This authorization form is essentially your “electronic signature” that authorizes us to file your return. You do not send these signature forms to the government - they are to be returned to us. Without this signed form we cannot electronically file your return. You will be able to fax or email these forms to us if you can't drop off the original forms.

If you have a balance due on your return (e.g. - you owe additional tax) you will receive a payment voucher just as you have in the past. You can send this voucher along with your check to the government at any time up to the due date (this year the due date is not until April 18th) even if we electronically file your return earlier. So, there is no need to delay filing the returns.

If you have a refund, the process is the same as in the past. You can have it deposited directly into a designated account or you can have the government send you a check.

Nothing needs to be done at this point. We'll go through the process with you in detail when we deliver your tax returns. As always, if you have any questions, please call us.
