In Virginia, April is the coolest month for electronic filing

Virginia Gov. Mark Warner yesterday proclaimed April “Electronic Filing Month” and urged Virginians who have not yet filed their taxes to use the Virginia Taxation Department’s free Internet filing service, iFile.

Warner said iFile “can take some of the headaches out of this process by speeding up tax filing.”

Almost 99 percent of this year’s refund payments were issued in 12 days or less. As of yesterday, Virginia had made 1.14 million refund payments, compared with 870,095 at the same point last year.

American Management Systems Inc. of Fairfax, Va., built iFile, which is available for free at www.tax.state.va.us.

Ninety percent of taxpayers who filed paper returns last year are eligible to use iFile, said Danny M. Payne, Virginia’s tax commissioner.

So far this year, 598,800 Virginians have filed their income taxes electronically, compared with 416,413 this time last year.

Taxpayers have almost a month to try the iFile service. The deadline for filing income tax returns in Virginia is May 1.
