Electronic Tax Filing = Accuracy

This post is a little too late for this tax season, but I heard this statistic and thought it was too important not to share. If you fill out your taxes long-hand, you have a 20% chance of messing something up and having the IRS send your return back. If you file electronically, you have less than 1% chance of screwing something up. One of the most common mistakes that the Luddites make: including a signature.

The moral of this story is: file your taxes electronically. It saves trees and saves you trouble. Plus, it's easier and it's cheaper. I did both my federal and state taxes for like $17 as opposed to blowing $180 at H&R Block or something.
