Update on the 1040PC program.

The 1040PC program offers an alternative filing method for practitioners who choose not to participate in the Internal Revenue Service's electronic filing program. The 1040PC program can also be used by nonpractitioners with personal computers. The program first became available nationwide during 1992.

Using IRS-approved software, the preparer generates a single sheet (or two sheets) containing all information from form 1040 and accompanying forms and schedules. This shortened form is then filed (by mail) in place of the usual 1040, schedules and forms.

During 1992, the IRS received 1.5 million returns filed under the 1040PC system.

Practitioners may call (202) 6227194 for an application or further information from the IRS on the program.
