The tax collecting arm of the United States government has announced they are currently working on a new website that would make filing your annual tax returns much easier.

The IRS announced they are currently outlining plans to create a new free online filing system for taxpayers across the country.

A new report from Congress says the IRS is capable of creating a website to allow for free online tax filing but would need a monetary investment from the government to make it happen.

The IRS issued a special report to Congress this past Tuesday on how a direct e-file system would work. The report stated that 67% of taxpayers surveyed by the IRs would be likely to use a free e-direct tax payment system and 72% of taxpayers are very interested in a simple being implemented.

The cost of launching and maintaining the site is around $248.9 million dollars with a majority of that money being used annually for customer support and service. Overall the average cost for the IRS to create and run the free system would be around $8 per return.

The IRS is hoping to launch the new website and direct the e-file program in 2024.
