GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 23, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- On January 1, Greatland Corporation announced the debut of www.filetaxes.com. This is the "only" IRS-approved site that enables small business owners to file W-2, 1099, and 941 wage and information reporting forms completely over the Internet. Business owners submit tax information, which is electronically submitted to the government by Greatland; paper copies of each W-2 and 1099 form are mailed automatically to the appropriate recipient.

With the busy tax season, Filetaxes.com eliminates the time, stress and cost attributed to completing year-end tax filings.

"No struggling with finding a typewriter and fear of typos for the four returns I am required to send ... I was finished in less time that it takes to put paper forms through the typewriter (twice, since the carbons don't go through!), stuff envelopes, stamp and go to the post office," commented Joan Wilson of Worldwide Wellness.

Filetaxes.com can save small business owners up to 50% off filing expenses. Traditional costs for the average small business to file their returns is approximately $46.53. This includes purchasing software, paper forms, envelopes and postage. Using Filetaxes.com, with a $3.49 per submission fee, the cost to businesses is approximately $19.95.

The Filetaxes.com Website can be used by small business owners and accountants, who file on behalf of their clients. "The total time for going through all my records to total amounts, filling out the forms, paying for them and submitting them was about thirty-five minutes," said Loring Leifer, a Filetaxes.com user and President of Wordsworth Writing and Design Company. "So, I'd say that it was marvelously worth the $10.47 to use Filetaxes ... What a great product!"
