The Internal Revenue Service announced that it has finished updating its tax-processing system software allowing business and individual taxpayers to once again electronically file 2012 federal tax returns, including motor fuel excise tax returns, biodiesel credit claims as well as alternative fuel and alternative fuel mixture credits and income tax returns.
The IRS ceased the electronic filing option due to changes required by the American Taxpayers Relief Act passed by Congress in January. In the interim, claimants were required to file paper returns, which created delays in processing motor fuel tax related claims.
