Online tax return filing is up by 48%
The Inland Revenue received almost 1.6m tax returns electronically by last month's self assessment deadline, a 48% increase on last year.
A Revenue spokesman told TaxZone that 1,599,364 returns were filed electronically, including those submitted via the Electronic Lodgement Service.
Almost 1.1m self assessment returns were filed electronically last year, including more than 700,000 via SA Online and almost 400,000 via ELS.
The increase will be welcomed by the Revenue and online filing enthusiasts.
