Where To File


Free File Home - Your Link to Free Online Filing

Man and woman looking at computer Whoever said there is no such thing as a free lunch may have been right. But for millions of eligible taxpayers this year, there is Free File. Free File is online tax preparation and electronic filing through a partnership agreement between the IRS and the Free File Alliance, LLC. In other words, you can e-file... free.

Before Getting Started...
A few points are worth noting.  For instance, if you qualify, you can prepare and file your federal tax return using Free File.  But you may have to pay to file your state return.  You are under no obligation to buy any products or services.  When choosing a company, be sure to link to their Web site through IRS.gov.  By going directly to a company's Web site, you may not get the free offer.
