January 9, 2020

If your income last year was $69,000 or less you can use IRS Free File. More than 20 states have a State Free File program patterned after the federal partnership, so many taxpayers are eligible for free federal and state online tax preparation.

How it works:

  • Go to the Free File page of IRS.gov.
     
  • Use the look up tool and find the Free File option that’s right for you.
     
  • Select a provider and follow the links to begin your tax return.  

IRS Free File partners may offer state tax returns for free as well, each partner sets its own eligibility standards.
