Business e-filing rose nearly 10 percent this year, continuing the growth that has seen the number of corporate and partnership e-filed returns double since 2010, the Internal Revenue Service said.

An additional 600,000 corporations and partnerships e-filed returns this year. As of Sept. 21, more than 7 million corporations and partnerships e-filed, an increase of almost 10 percent over the prior year’s total and twice the nearly 3.5 million returns e-filed during the 2010 fiscal year.

About 70 percent of all corporate and partnership returns have been e-filed during 2014.
