IRS Free File makes taxes less taxing

January 15, 2021

Do your taxes for free using IRS Free File. Free File offers online tax preparation, direct deposit of refunds and electronic filing, all for free.

If your income was $72,000 or less, you can choose from nine online software products, some are available in Spanish. If your income was higher, you can use Free File Fillable Forms.

These online tax products help you find all the tax credits and deductions you qualify for, like the earned income tax credit and the recovery rebate credit.

You may be able to claim the recovery rebate credit if you didn't get an Economic Impact Payment or received less than:

  • $1,200 per person and $500 per qualifying child for the first payment
  • $600 per person and $600 per qualifying child for the second payment
