Dept. of Revenue Encourages E-Filing Taxes This Year


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Tax day is April 15, and Department of Revenue Secretary is encouraging Wisconsin residents to e-file their taxes this year.

Secretary Richard Chandler said roughly 80 percent of Wisconsin taxpayers e-filed in 2012.

"It's convenient, it's secure, it's quick and best of all, if you've got a refund coming you get your refund deposited directly into your checking or savings account within a matter of days after you file," Chandler said. "We find once people try e-filing they never want to go back to paper filing."

Chandler said e-filing is free for state taxes. The federal government offers free e-filing to certain segments of the population.
