Tax Filing Gets a Digital Makeover: The Shocking IRS Update That Saves Hours!

The IRS announced late last week that they are offering a new way for taxpayers and tax professionals to submit electronic relief requests for specific international documents that are past due. This is an important step in the agency’s goal to fully digitize the tax return process and modernize their technology.

This new digital option will apply to specific filings:

  • Gain Recognition Agreements
  • Late filed Dual Consolidated Losses
  • Partnership Gain Deferral Contributions

Collection Cases

IRS Eager To Better Serve Taxpayers

As part of a larger process to improve taxpayer opinions, optimize IRS customer service, and transform the agency as a whole, teams are working on specific improvements with the intention of easing the burden on taxpayers. This digital makeover will save taxpayer time, reduce the risk of lost paperwork, and eases the burden on international taxpayers who previously needed to physically mail documents the United States. Taxpayers who are filing these specific forms can now access PDF versions on the IRS website.

Digitization Benefits Taxpayers & Administrators

When taxpayers are able to securely communicate with the IRS, their correspondence burden is decreased. Filing documentation digitally will promote timely compliance while reducing the risk of delivery delays and lost mail, which is especially important for international taxpayers and U.S. citizens living in a foreign country. The new digital filing option is intended to support the agency’s goal of providing quality, timely service to taxpayers. Online filing will also decrease processing time, resulting in faster answers and tax refunds.

IRS Believes New Policy Will Benefit Taxpayers

In the last several months, the IRS has been making significant changes to their procedures as they work to improve public opinion and improve their taxpayer service. Werfel further stated, “Changing this long-standing procedure will increase confidence in our tax administration work and improve overall safety for taxpayers and IRS employees.”
