The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is offering helpful tips on tax preparation and early filing, for taxpayers who want to file their taxes and receive any refunds well before the April deadline. The IRS is advising filers to gather all necessary records in advance -- including W-2s and 1099s -- and to save a copy for their own files. Tax filers should double-check their returns carefully for common errors like incorrect math and misprinted Social Security numbers. The IRS is also suggesting that taxpayers e-file their returns to receive a faster tax refund.
