Businesses get benefits from e-filing income taxes
BOISE, IDAHO — March 8, 2017 — Businesses that want to e-file both their federal and state income tax returns should visit the Idaho State Tax Commission’s website at tax.idaho.gov.
The site features approved software developers that offer electronic filing for Idaho’s corporation, S corporation, and partnership tax returns, as well as federal returns. The list is available through the “Business income tax e-filing vendors” link under “Quick Picks” on the home page.
The software providers charge different fees and offer different levels of services for e-filing state and federal returns, so businesses should compare the offers to see which one best serves their needs.
“E-filing is a cost-effective way for businesses to submit tax returns,” said Renee Eymann, public information officer for the Tax Commission. “It saves paper and mailing costs and provides businesses with a confirmation receipt.”
Last year about 62 percent of Idaho businesses filed their income tax returns online, which is a 4 percent increase from the year before.
