Efiling allows court papers to be filed in electronic format rather than in paper format. The process has been adopted by Federal Courts and some State Courts. Some Federal and State agencies also allow electronic filing of documents.
Although one may think that devlopment of electronic filing would be mature and nationwide, that is not the case. The Federal Court efiling System is the most complete. For State Courts, there is no uniformity and movement is slow to say the least.
Internal Revenue Service encourages tax payers to take advantage of the speed and ease of e-filing. Processing is done quickly when tax is e-filed. By e-filing, people can file both state and federal taxes with ease. E-filing minimizes paperwork and manpower.
