IRS Says More Returns Are Being Filed Without a Tax Preparer.

As of April 18, 2014, almost 46 million returns were e-filed from home computers (not using a tax professional – but self prepared), which is more than the total from home computers for all of 2013. Based on IRS' statistics, more taxpayers are preparing their own returns.

  1. The IRS received more than 131 million returns, of which 88 % were e-filed. Thus, the home-filed returns are approximately 35% of the total returns filed.
  2. The IRS projects about five million taxpayers will amend their returns, which is about 3.8% of all returns filed.
