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.
