IRS Tax Form Package Mailing Ends

IRS tax form package will no longer be mailed out due to the growth of e-file. The IRS stated back in October of 2010 that individuals and business tax form packages will no longer be mailed from the IRS. These tax packages contained the tax forms, schedules, and instructions for filing a paper income tax return.

The IRS has been mailing fewer and fewer tax form packages. Last year only 8 percent of individuals who filed tax returns received a tax package in the mail. The majority of taxpayers use paid tax preparation services, software or e-filed their tax return online.

The leading tax software providersĀ TurboTax and H&R Block At Home have free federal e-file programs for 1040 EZ and less complicated tax returns. The leading tax software editions include both form e-file or print for mailing options. You can also find links to freeĀ printable tax forms on our site.
