e-File with IRS FreeFile
The IRS in partnership with Free File Alliance LLC, a group that develops private sector tax software, promotes a free file opportunity on the IRS website. If your income was below 56,000 in 2008 you qualify and are able to use the IRS Free File option. Using the IRS Free File is simple and easy. From the IRS Free File page choose the "I Will Find A Company" option at the bottom. After looking over the companies and their description of services choose one and begin your tax filing. It is important that you understand the company's eligibility requirements as you could be subject to a fee if you exceed the income limits. You will receive an acknowledgment file notifying you that you were rejected or accepted via the company you choose. The IRS Free File option supports tax payers who will be filing the tax forms 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ. You can choose to have your refund direct deposited and like other online filing options you could receive your refund in 10 days. It is important to note that you will be notified when choosing a company that you are leaving the IRS website, this is completely normal and a part of the e-file process.
