[1] Includes, for example, returns filed from Army Post Office or Fleet Post Office addresses by members of

the armed forces stationed overseas; returns filed by other U.S. citizens abroad; and returns filed by

residents of Puerto Rico with income from sources outside Puerto Rico or with income earned as U.S.

Government employees.

[2] TeleFile allows the taxpayer to file using a touch-tone telephone.

[3] Online is an IRS e-file option that allows taxpayers to prepare and file tax return(s) using a personal

computer. Online returns can be filed through one of two processes. The first is where users go to a Web

site and fill out the return on that Web site without ever having downloaded any software. The second is

where users purchase a software package, either from a store or over the Internet, load it to their own

machines, prepare their returns, and transmit them to the IRS through an online filing company. Anyone

with access to a personal computer capable of going online either through a phone line or direct Internet

connection can use online filing. The option accommodates the basic individual income tax returns and

forms/schedules associated with the traditional electronic filing program (IRS e-file Using a Tax

Professional) and allows an individual to file a maximum of five tax returns and transmit the information to

IRS through an online filing company.

[4] “Practitioner accepted” are those cases where a taxpayer takes a return to an approved electronic return

originator (ERO), who, in most cases, is also the preparer of the return (e.g., authorized IRS e-file provider).

An authorized IRS e-file provider can be a preparer, transmitter, service bureau, or electronic return

originator/preparer/return collector.

[5] Includes unspecified foreign countries or territories.

NOTE: In general, classification by State is based on the taxpayer’s address (or in the case of individuals

owning businesses, the location of the principal office or place of business). However, some individuals

may use the address of a tax attorney or accountant, or, in the case of certain individuals who were

sole proprietors, partners in a partnership, or shareholders in an S corporation, the business address.

Moreover, such addresses could have been located in a State other than the State in which the individual

“resided.”
