(IDG) -- A record number of taxpayers used the Internet this year to file their tax returns electronically, the IRS reported Thursday.

"We're seeing record-breaking use of electronic filing, faster tax processing and a strong upsurge in direct deposit of refunds," said Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Charles Rossotti. "This means more taxpayers are getting refunds faster than ever."
