Modern Tech Advances at Incredible Speeds: Paper to Digital Services this Tax Season
April 10, 2018
When it comes to communication, few things have compared to pen and ink. Although our ancestors started with cave drawings, the invention of writing catapulted humans into being able to mass communicate. Paper itself dates back to ancient Egypt, where it derived its name from what was used to create paper then, papyrus. By the 14th century, paper was being produced more efficiently with the help of water-powered machinery. The 16th century brought about the first paper mills and with mass production of paper, writing became even more common and widespread.
Developments Take On a Rapid Pace
Although pen and paper have served us well, traditional print is beginning to fade out of use and is rapidly being replaced by digital technology. What took centuries for advancements in writing with pen and ink is now taking a mere 10 years in digital form. That’s because the average time from conception to development to marketing is done this quickly with new technology.
Paper Falls By the Wayside
Paper is falling by the wayside with taxes each tax season. Online services like Turbo Tax, H&R Block, and E-File are making filing taxes that much easier. With the push of a button, your taxes are sent and received by the IRS. According to the IRS, in 2014 approximately 91% of filers did so electronically, and that number keeps growing. The IRS has been able to reduce tons of paper waste, streamline the process, and electronic filing ensures private information is much safer. It’s also easier to store documents electronically with desktop or hand held electronic devices rather than having bulky paper records on hand for years.
