12/30/10 Indiana State Department of Revenue officials say the growth of online tax filing has brought an end to the days when Indiana residents received their state income tax forms at home in their mail. They are actually following the examples of the Internal Revenue Service and other states.
Department of Revenue spokeswoman Stephanie McFarland said at a news conference Wednesday that the tax agency decided not to mail out the booklets in 2011because as many as two-thirds of Indiana residents now file their taxes electronically.
The forms still will be available at public libraries and the agency’s 12 district offices. McFarland says the agency estimates the change will affect about 1 million taxpayers and save the state about $200,000 in the next fiscal year.
