IRS, Free File Alliance offers free tax filing, including Intuit TurboTax free file

The IRS has opened its popular Free File Program, available at www.irs.gov, a public-private partnership between the federal government and private tax preparation companies, including TurboTax maker Intuit.

This year, taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $34,000 or less, active military personnel with adjusted gross income of $66,000 or less, or those who qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit can prepare and file their federal and state tax returns with the TurboTax Free File Program at no cost through this program.

The TurboTax Free File Program includes Schedule C for self-employed filers, transfers data from last year’s TurboTax Free File Program return and automatically imports W-2 information from participating employers.

Please note: TurboTax Free File Program is not to be confused with our TurboTax Free Edition.

We’re proud to support IRS and State Free File Programs, which are designed to deliver free online tax preparation and e-filing to lower and middle-income taxpayers. In fact, we’ve been part of the program for more than a decade.

Additionally, anyone, regardless of their income level, can use Free File Fillable Forms at irs.gov. It’s a free, simple forms utility that’s basically the electronic equivalent of completing and filing a paper 1040 along with the associated schedules and forms.

Intuit also partners with nonprofits and IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance programs (VITAs) across the country to help eligible taxpayers learn about and use our Free File product offering. Intuit staff volunteers every year to assist taxpayers as they learn just how easy it is to file their own taxes. More than 300 employees volunteered last year at programs in California, Arizona, Virginia, Texas, and Nevada proving once again that helping people prepare and file their taxes is not only our business, it is also one of our favorite ways to show we care and give back in local communities.
