State Rep. David Gomberg Urges Constituents to Use Free Online Tax Services Available through the IRS Free File Program
IRS Free File Provides Federal Income Tax Solutions to all Taxpayers
Representative David Gomberg today encouraged constituents to visit www.IRS.gov/freefile to take advantage of free tax services available through the Free File program. Every taxpayer with a 2014 Adjusted Gross Income of $60,000 or less may visit www.IRS.gov/freefile to prepare, complete and e-file their federal tax returns at no cost. Free File also provides basic online e-filing services, called Free File Fillable Forms, to all taxpayers regardless of income.
For the 2015 tax season, Free File has been updated to help Americans navigate tax changes related to the Affordable Care Act – with forms 8962 and 8965 available to all taxpayers.
Free File is made possible through a partnership between the IRS and the Free File Alliance, a coalition of industry-leading tax software companies. Since its inception in 2003, the program has offered 70 percent of taxpayers free access to leading commercial tax preparation software from Free File Alliance member companies.
“I encourage everyone to take advantage of the free federal income tax services that are available at www.IRS.gov/freefile,” said Gomberg. “Free File offers comprehensive tax software to 70 percent of taxpayers, and makes basic e-filing services available to all, regardless of income. It’s all online, it’s all free, and it’s only at www.IRS.gov/FreeFile.”
Free File is available only at www.irs.gov/freefile, which provides access to a range of free tax software offerings from Free File Alliance member companies.
Users with a 2014 AGI of $60,000 or less may either choose the software offering that fits their needs or utilize the “Help Me Find Free File Software” tool. After selecting a company, users will be transferred to the company’s website to prepare, complete and electronically file their federal income tax returns.
Free File Fillable Forms, a basic federal e-filing service with no income limitations, allows taxpayers who are familiar with tax law and need no preparation assistance to complete and e-file their federal income tax return at no cost. Both services are available in Spanish.
