Check on Using IRS Free File for Free Online
Tax Prep & E-Filing

Taxpayers Making $62,000 or Less Can Visit www.IRS.gov/freefile to Prepare and E-File Federal Tax Returns for Free; Basic E-Filing Services Available to All

Visit www.IRS.gov/freefile and take advantage of free tax preparation and e-filing services available through the IRS Free File program. Powered by The Free File Alliance, a coalition of 13 industry-leading tax software companies partnered with the IRS, the Free File program provides free access to the industry’s most innovative and secure tax software. 

Every taxpayer with a 2015 Adjusted Gross Income of $62,000 or less may visit www.IRS.gov/freefile to prepare, complete and e-file their federal tax returns at no cost. Free state return options are also available. In addition, Free File provides basic online e-filing services, called Free File Fillable Forms, to all taxpayers regardless of income. Free File can also be used to e-file an extension for free.

Free File also helps taxpayers with the new health care requirements. Using Free File, most taxpayers will simply have to check a box to report health care coverage for the entire year.

“The IRS Free File program makes doing your taxes simple, fast and free,” said [NAME] “While there is a Free File option for everyone, I especially encourage taxpayers making $62,000 or less to take advantage of the comprehensive, step-by-step tax help Free File offers.”

“The Free File program has provided almost $1.4 billion in free tax software over the last 13 years,” said Tim Hugo, executive director of the Free File Alliance. “Free File is the one place where taxpayers can choose from a variety of the industry’s most innovative and secure tax software. It’s all free, and it’s all online at www.IRS.gov/FreeFile.”

Free File Alliance member companies have continually worked with the IRS to strengthen the Free File program, and taxpayers have consistently reported that it is user-friendly and efficient. Responding to a 2009 IRS survey, 96 percent of users said they found Free File easy to use, while 98 percent said they would recommend the program to others.
