How To Free File

To use IRS Free File, you need to click over from the website link to one of the tax software company websites. Once you have reached the "Free File Home" your link to "Free Online Filing" page, you will see a bunch of helpful information there to assist you with filing your federal return online. By clicking the "Start Now" button, you can review the list of tax software companies. Select one which meets your needs and continue. You will be notified that you are being led off the website and you will be taken directly to that company's website to begin the filing of your federal income tax return. Remember, you need to access the company's software through the website to get the benefits of the Free File Program.
