If you are a do-it-yourselfer when it comes to taxes the IRS has opened its IRS Free File – featuring brand-name online tax providers. The portal gives filers a number of options for filing their return online. And though the IRS will not begin reviewing returns until it officially opens the tax season on January 27th, most filers can begin their return now.
Taxpayers whose adjusted gross income was $69,000 or less in 2019 can do their taxes now. The Free File provider will submit the return once the IRS officially opens the 2020 tax filing season on January 27th.
This year the Free File partners are: 1040Now, Inc., ezTaxReturn.com (English and Spanish), FileYourTaxes.com, Free tax Returns.com, H&R Block, Intuit, On-Line Taxes, Inc., Tax ACT, TaxHawk, Inc. and TaxSlayer (English and Spanish).
Since its 2003 debut, Free File has served nearly 57 million taxpayers. Free File is a public-private partnership between the Internal Revenue Service and Free File Inc. (FFI), a consortium of tax software providers who make their Free File products available at IRS.gov/FreeFile.
