By Chris Hopkins

The Internal Revenue Service began receiving electronic tax returns for 2011 on Tuesday. IRS spokesman Dan Boone said 83 percent of Tennessee tax returns filed last year were e-filed, including 880,000 electronic filings that were prepared by taxpayers using their own computers.

"E-filing is fast, easy, and accurate, plus it's safe and secure," said Boone. "And through IRS Free File, taxpayers don't have to pay anything to prepare and e-file their returns."

The IRS Free File program is available at Individuals or families with 2011 adjusted gross incomes of $57,000 or less can use Free File software. Free file fillable forms, the electronic version of IRS paper forms, has no income restrictions.
