IRS expanding electronic filing

The Internal Revenue Service will expand its electronic filing program into 36 states, including the entire state of California in 1988, according to Sacramento IRS District Director Raymond A. Spillman.

“To give you an idea as to how fast electric filing is growing in California, the Sacramento area was selected for the program two years ago, the 18 counties that comprise the San Jose District, were added. For the 1989 filing season, electronic filing will be available throughout California,” Spillman said. During the 1988 filing season, more than 580,000 taxpayers nationwide chose to file their returned electronically, Spillman added.

The Sacramento district is seeking participants in its electronic filling program. Interested tax practitioners may inquire about necessary qualifications by Kay Krogue, the Sacramento district’s electronic coordinator.
