MADISON (AP) — Wisconsin revenue officials say about 80 percent of state taxpayers file electronically. A decade ago that was just 25 percent.

Revenue Secretary Richard Chandler says e-filing has eliminated a big crunch of returns at the filing deadline. Chandler says the state expects about 3 million returns, and the average refund is $680.

About half of Wisconsin taxpayers have filed state returns with about a month to go before the April 17th deadline, which falls on a Tuesday this year. The 15th is on a Sunday and the 16th is Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington D.C.

The Department of Revenue offers a free e-file program at revenue.wi.gov.
