WebFile for Income opened just two days ago and already 3,230 taxpayers have used the DOR software program to fill out their state income tax return. Of those, 2,324 have completed the program to file their return electronically. Ever wonder who these early birds are?

  •             2,256 are due refunds
  •             35 owe taxes
  •             1,330 use the rent deduction
  •             54 claimed the senior circuit breaker credit
  •             2,217 have W-2 income
  •             319 filers are under 22 years old
  •             133 filers are over 62 years old

 One thing they all share in common–WebFile for Income is easy, quick, mistake-proof and you can get your refund within four days compared with over 12 days if you file with paper forms. WebFile for Income
