HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s Department of Revenue Services says it will no longer mail tax booklets to individual taxpayers.

The agency announced the change on Tuesday, explaining how more and more people are filing their state tax returns electronically.

DRS is also looking to reduce mailing and printing costs.

State tax officials says the federal Internal Revenue Service and several other states have recently made similar decisions to stop sending out tax booklets, which will be made available at libraries, post offices and town halls next month. Forms can also be downloaded from the DRS website at http://www.ct.gov/DRS.

During the last tax filing season, 1.6 million personal income tax returns were filed with DRS. Of those, DRS estimates about 125,000 returns or eight percent, were attributed to the mailed tax booklets.
