For years the only way you could do your taxes was by finding the right forms and having them sent to you in the mail or driving somewhere to get them. Then you had to fill them out and send them in through the regular mail. There are still a lot of people who prefer to do their taxes this way but now there is also a new way. You can now get onto the internet and find online tax forms.
You can find the correct online tax forms that you need and then print them out to complete them or you can fill them out online. When you want to fill out the online tax forms and then send them in, you will need to find an approved website. This means that there are only certain sites that have been approved to be able to send in your taxes for you.
