The IRS wants to phase out most IRL tax documents by 2025 which gives taxpayers an option to have a paperless transactions in the coming 2024 filing season.

This paperless transactions effort aims to eliminate around 200 million pieces of paper per year, reduce processing times by 50%, and expedite refunds by a few weeks. This paperless transactions project is funded by President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.

The IRS is making changes to eliminate the inconvenience of sending paper documents in certain situations while still employing paperless transactions in others. This will help taxpayers who previously had to mail in documents and IRS employees who had to manually input data from paper returns which causes delays and difficulties.

The paperless transactions are applicable to any correspondence to the IRS including matters that are not directly related to taxes. The IRS will make at least 20 additional e-File tax forms available digitally, with the goal of ensuring that over 94% of individual filers will have the option of paperless transactions.

This initiative will eliminate the need for approximately 125 million paper documents to be sent by taxpayers each year. By 2025, the IRS plans to make an additional 150 commonly used non-tax forms available in digital, mobile-friendly formats, taking into account that 15% of Americans rely solely on their phones for internet access.

Additionally, about half of the paper-submitted correspondence, non-tax forms, and notice responses, totaling around 60 million paper documents, will be recorded digitally.
