Utah stops printing, mailing paper tax forms and booklets, shifts to online filing; state spokesman says 77% of taxpayers filed their state income tax online last year

SALT LAKE CITY , January 25, 2012 () – Utah state officials say they won't be printing out and mailing individual tax booklets and forms because most residents are filing online.

Utah Tax Commission spokesman Charlie Roberts says 77 percent of taxpayers filed their state income tax online last year. Roberts says electronic filing is faster and more accurate than traditional methods.

Forms are available for download at incometax.utah.gov.

Residents can file and pay taxes through taxexpress.utah.gov, or by using a tax service or commercial filing software.
