The pace of filing typically picks up as the April 15 deadline approaches, and officials expect no different pattern this year. They also expect even more people to file electronically.
Last year, 73 percent of returns were filed that way. So far this year, 83 percent have been received electronically.
While the proportion of paper returns tends to increase as the end of the tax season nears, Forinash said officials believe they will still top last year's figure for electronic returns.
"We do expect that to stay above 73 percent," Forinash said.
Meanwhile, West Virginia native and billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline seems to be doing well of late.
According to the New York Post's Page Six, Cline is now dating his Palm Beach, Fla., neighbor, Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife of golfer Tiger Woods.
Page Six reported that Cline, 53, has been dating the 33-year-old former Swedish model since the end of last year.
Cline surely was able to entertain Nordegren on his luxury yacht — dubbed "Mine Games" — while Nordegren waited on construction crews to completely raze and rebuild the home on property near Cline's in the Seminole Landing oceanfront community in North Palm Beach.
A representative for Cline declined to comment to Page Six about his relationship with Nordegren.
But — unfortunately for Cline — the newspaper did report the couple was not dating exclusively at this time.
Perhaps they're just Friends of Coal with benefits?
