about 11 million use the form, all others use online filing, or a tax service to do their returns.
I think it is a good idea to save money, EXCEPT I think they should mail the forms to the 11 million that actually file by paper and just not to the others who use other means to file.
anything to save some money is good.
Agreed. And I am sure this is all laid out in the GOP's "Pledge to America", right?
How many people who mail their forms in will not realize that uncle is no longer sending them the forms and that they have to get them themselves . . . . and completely forget about it? For crying out loud, they had to extend the digital conversion four months cause people were too stupid to go get what they needed . . . . er, so they say.
They'll not only save money on the mailings, they'll make money on fines/penalties for late filers.
We'll go fetch the forms and file by mail. Thanks just the same.
I'm sure....as usual....your local Post Office will have STACKS of (most) filing-forms.
If people aren't responsible enough to remember to file their returns, they deserve penalties. If they don't get the forms in the mail, they should realize that it is THEIR responsibility to act. They shouldn't sit on their ass and wait on the government to let them know it's time to pay taxes. No pity from me for the people who file late because of this.
Any Adult who's filed (in the past), understands all employers are obligated to mailing-out all W2s, no later than January 31.
January 31 should be THE day that the (average) filer makes sure all necessary forms/documents are in-hand.....ready & waiting.
I agree 100% that it's the person's responsibility to file, not uncle's to remind them, and they should get fined. My point was . . . . uncle is going to make a bundle off of those who 'forget'. Those who are too stupid to make sure their tv is working are too stupid to remember to file. Seems like a win-win for uncle.
i'm sure those 11 million will still be able to get the forms. but more and more it's becoming a waste of money and paper and resources to send them without being requested to do so.
