With five weeks left before the April 15 tax filing deadline, the Internal Revenue Service reports that Tennesseans are e-filing tax returns in record numbers.
Through March 7, the IRS has received nearly 1.469 million electronic returns from Tennesseans, an increase of 3.8 percent over last year at this time.
But the largest increase is in the number of taxpayers filing from their own computers. Nearly 712,000 Tennessee filers have e-filed self-prepared returns, an increase of 9.8 percent over last year at this time.

Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 9, bringing more sunshine in the evenings at the price of an hour of sleep. Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Center specialist Dr. Kelly Brown says a little extra planning can alleviate that groggy feeling that often accompanies the time change.
“You wouldn’t think moving clocks an hour would make much of a difference, but it really can. Especially for night owls and people with underlying sleep disorders, it can be a tough transition,” Brown said.
