Indiana has a new law that will impact most professional tax preparers. Starting January 1st, 2008 any firm that filed 100 or more Indiana tax returns must file all of their Indiana tax returns electronically.
I personally prefer e-filing; however, we have several clients that are not comfortable with e-filing and would rather not e-file their returns. This next tax year we will have to e-file all of our Indiana returns so anyone that wants to paper file their returns will have to prepare their own return or they will have to find a very small firm that filed less then 100 Indiana tax returns in the previous year.
