Is e-filing safe????

  1. I was just about to starting filling out my taxes on line but I froze. Is it safe? Is it REALLY safe? How many of you file your taxes on line? Am I being a baby?

    Maybe I should hit the cyberbar before I start to calm my nerves....eeeeeeee

    Um, my tax preparer files my returns for me electronically. Is that the same thing? I dunno.

    We've always done it that way though, and never had a problem.

    You're just now filing? My money has been burning a hole in my checking account for over a week now!

    Our accountant e-files our taxes too...we use a pretty big accounting firm with an excellent reputation so I doubt they would e-file if they didn't think it was safe....

    (patiently waiting for my federal return....tapping foot on floor, twisting hair...).....

    I e-filed last year while on a business trip and it was incredibly fast and convenient. And I felt quite safe doing so. Planning to do it that way from now on.

    Heather, I probably won't get mine done for another couple of weeks, at least. Looking at the calendar, I'm guessing it'll be April 12th.

    Us farmers have to have our taxes filed by March 1. That makes a whole lot of sense, doesn't it? Owning a farm and figuring the taxes out on it would be enough to try the patience of Job. That is why we pay our accountant quite nicely to deal with the headache....

    Ditto on all that filed and have the money back already. It was in oour account in 2 weeks.
    We e-filed, on our own, for a couple of years, but recently have been taking our taxes out to be done (all tax preparers use e-file)............just because it's less hassle on moi

    We've been e-filers for a few years now. 'Course we're internet junkies anyhow. It's easy, it's fast, and we like the direct deposit thing too.

    Have also e-filed for several years. Got mine back in 2 weeks, state even faster.

    We e-file every year.
    Get a refund in the bank in about 10 working days.
    I think it's safe.
