IRS Proposes Paperless in 2011 and I agree

The IRS issued a news bulletin last week that it is proposing that all deposits for taxes be done by electronic funds transfer or EFT.  The IRS has long had a reliable system in place for making deposits via EFT and I for one think it is about high time they went paperless.  There is no reason to keep paying clerks etc to handle paper when it can be done quickly and cleanly with far less "human error" on the side of the IRS.  Most of the country is use to using electronic methods for deposits or withdrawals or information.  Those that aren't can catch up with the rest of us, which they should anyway.

So to the IRS I say bravo!  Go 100% paperless deposits in 2011 and move the government into the 21st century with the rest of us.

What do you think?

Just a quick note, I will not have a blog for tomorrow or Thursday.  I have a family medical procedure to attend to and will return on Monday.
