More taxpayers using electronic filing

As of April 3, the Internal Revenue Service had received 67.4 million tax returns, nearly one-third of which had been filed electronically. That is up from the same period in 1997, during which 26 percent of tax returns had been filed electronically. Taxpayers can file returns electronically using one of three methods: E-file, which involves filing electronically with a tax preparer; Telefile, which involves submitting tax information over the phone; and online filing using a PC.
