The IRS and the Free File Alliance, have signed a one-year extension for their partnership that makes free tax software available to taxpayers.
 
According to the IRS, “Free File is the free federal tax preparation and e-file service offered through brand-name software or online fillable forms. The software is available for taxpayers who earn $58,000 or less, which is 70 percent of taxpayers. Free File Fillable Forms is available to taxpayers who earn more than $58,000 and who are comfortable preparing their own federal return.”

Free File has helped millions of taxpayers prepare their taxes, and we look forward to continuing this important program," said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. "The Free File program saw increased use this year, a reflection of the value of this innovative effort."

Free File is still available through October 15 for extension filers at www.irs.gov/freefile.
