A Message From
Dear Taxpayer,
the Commissioner
American taxpayers made history in 2005. For the first time, over half of all
individuals filed their tax returns electronically. More than 68 million people
“ e-filed .” E-file is fast, secure, and accurate. The software catches errors that
may otherwise hold up the processing of a paper return. Refunds come a lot

electronically prefer it. ( ) was visited over 137 million times during last year’s
filing season, making it one of the most used websites in America.
provides ready access to all IRS forms and publications, answers to frequently
asked questions, and interactive features, such as Where’s My Refund, the
Withholding Calculator, and the EITC Assistant eligibility tool. In addition,
Free File, also available through, provides free and convenient access
to e-file. This free service was used by five million taxpayers last year.
The IRS also answered over 33 million toll-free calls from taxpayers last
year. We achieved an all-time high for the accuracy of our answers.
IRS-sponsored volunteer return preparation has almost doubled since 1999,
helping more than two million people file returns.
As we improve services to taxpayers, the IRS continues to emphasize fair and
balanced enforcement of the law. Americans have every right to be confident
that when they pay their taxes, neighbors and competitors are doing the same.
I hope this tax booklet is useful to you. For further information, you may
