Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has announced that the first goal of the IRS Paperless Filing Initiative has been met three months early. Taxpayers can now digitally submit all correspondence and responses to notices using the online IRS Document Upload Tool. The IRS anticipates digital submission of up to 125 million documents each year.
The IRS plans to meet the second goal of the initiative by the start of the 2024 filing season by providing the option for taxpayers to e-file 20 additional tax forms, enabling up to 4 million additional tax returns to be digitally filed every year. Other planned improvements for the 2024 filing season include updates to the Where’s My Refund Tool that will provide taxpayers with more detailed information in plain language and allow the tool to work on mobile devices. The IRS will also add 8,500 in-person support hours at its Taxpayer Assistance Centers and plans to implement significant improvements to its taxpayer helpline. News Release FS-2023-25.
