Tuesday, May 3, 2005 I just did the TeleFile for the first quarter payroll taxes. I’ve been doing this for years. It’s easy, it’s quick and there’s no muss, no fuss. It’s all done on the phone. Towards the end of the process, a different recording comes on and states that there will only be one more quarter of TeleFile. He directs the listener to the IRS website and the eFile link.
I finish with the filing, go over to the IRS website, click on the eFile link. Oh, yeah? I have to go through a third party to do this? Pay someone to do what I’ve been doing for free for years? This has to be wrong.
I call the IRS. Speak with an agent. Nope, it’s not wrong, you have to use a third party to eFile. And they want money. Forget that. I’ll just print out the form using my QuickBooks and put the copy in the mail.
