WASHINGTON – As the tax filing season approaches, the Internal Revenue Service is reminding taxpayers to start thinking about who will prepare their federal tax return.

In 2017, more than 132 million individual and family tax returns were e-filed, the most accurate, safest and easiest way to file. More than 16 million were prepared on a computer and printed or prepared by hand, then mailed.

The IRS stresses that no matter who prepares a federal tax return, by signing the return, the taxpayer becomes legally responsible for the accuracy of all information included.
