NYS taxpayers prefer filing electronically

Tax prep assistance filing

ALBANY, NY  (AP)  New York state officials say 97 percent of tax returns received so far this year have been electronically filed.

Tax officials said Wednesday that 3.1 million returns have been received this year. So-called e-filing can cut the wait time for a refund from 8 to 12 weeks down to about three weeks.

The state Department of Taxation and Finance this year has issued $1 billion in refunds to more than 1.1 million taxpayers. The average refund so far is $906.
