IRS Goes Paperless

WASHINGTON (AP) - Don't look for tax forms and instructions in your mailbox next year. The Internal Revenue Service has decided to stop mailing them because so many people now file electronically.

The Washington Post reports on its website Monday that the IRS expects to save about $10 million a year by eliminating mailing.

More than 96 million people filed their returns through the IRS online service last year, and about 20 million filed paper returns through paid tax preparers.

The IRS says only 11.5 million people who filed paper returns received forms in the mail.

The agency says people who want to file paper returns will be able to obtain the forms from the IRS website or its offices as well as some libraries and post offices.
