Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays Bank.
As January winds down, you should have received most of the paperwork that you’ll need to file your taxes. If you’re like most FCN readers — and most Americans in general — you’ll be e-filing this year.
Sure, e-filing is convenient. But guess what? It’s also much cheaper for the IRS to process your return if you file electronically. As it turns out, it costs the IRS $3.29 to process a paper return vs. $0.19 for an electronic return — a savings of $3.10 (or nearly 95%!) per e-filer.
Looking back at last tax season, more than 100M individual federal tax returns were e-filed. Thus, the e-filing program saved well over $300M last year alone — not to mention an awful lot of paper waste.
