The IRS Free File Program can help you file your federal taxes for free. If your Adjusted Gross Income was less than $73,000 last year, you can go to this website and find a no-cost tax prep option.
State tax prep may also be free or might incur a fee. After you fill out some basic filing info, you will arrive a Results page, naming different tax prep companies. Read about each option to see which ones offer free state filing.
Be wary when pursuing “free” tax filing options through other websites. Many tax prep companies offer that on their websites, only to reveal later on that there are hidden fees and surprise costs. Sneaky! Our government, through IRS Free File, promises a truly free tax prep experience.
