It's electronic tax day!
Today, Friday, Jan. 14, 2011, marks the beginning of the annual electronic tax return filing season.
The IRS is now accepting e-filed returns.
Still, most taxpayers will be able to electronically submit their 1040s much sooner.
Today also marks the opening of the electronic door to the IRS' Free File program.
I'll be posting more details on this public-private tax filing endeavor a bit later today, but the key thing to know is that you might be able to prepare your taxes and e-file them at no cost at the official Free File website if your adjusted gross income in 2010 was $58,000 or less.
I just wanted all y'all who have been hovering over your keyboards waiting to get those tax returns in so you can get your refunds ASAP to know that today is the day.
