Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.
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.
