Department of Revenue offers tax filing tips

Thursday, February 16, 2012

The Missouri Department of Revenue has several tips for improving the processing, speed and accuracy of submitted tax returns.

The first suggestion is to file electronically. Electronic forms are available at http://dor.mo.gov/forms/. The forms can be printed out and mailed in.

Another suggestion is to ask questions. Missourians can call 573-751-3505 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays or email the department at income@dor.mo.gov. Frequently asked questions can be found at www.dor.mo.gov.

Questions can also be answered in person. Contact information and addresses for Missouri tax assistance centers can be found at dor.mo.gov/contact/assistance.php.

This year's tax filing deadline is April 17 because the traditional date, April 15, falls on a Sunday.

The story combines 2 tips and is misleading. the press release from the MO DOR states:

File electronically. Electronic filing is a secure way to avoid errors and ensure a faster refund. E-filing is a service provided by almost all tax preparers, or individual citizens can purchase tax preparation software. More than 70 percent of Missourians now file electronically.

Use electronic forms. Even Missourians choosing not to E-file can still save time and reduce errors by using electronic forms, which can then be printed out and mailed in. Missouri tax forms for Tax Year 2011 and other years are available on the Department's website at http://dor.mo.gov/forms/.
