Beginning in January, the IRS Free File program will be available to taxpayers who qualify for no-cost help in preparing and filing their tax returns. The IRS partners with the Free File Alliance in offering this help.
As this story was being published, information for the 2018 program had not yet been released. But the IRS website states that taxpayers with incomes below $66,000 qualify for Free File software, including some free state return help.
If your income is above $66,000, you qualify for free fillable forms. Although these forms help you do the math, you must know how to do your own taxes, and state forms are not available.
