Free File federal taxes online!

Earlier I blogged about where to find tax forms in print. Of course, you can also file online. And if your 2007 adjusted gross income is under $54,000, you can prepare and file your federal taxes online for free–aka Free File!

To take advantage of Free File you must start at the IRS web site. From there you can select one of the companies partnering with the IRS to provide this free filing service. Read each company’s criteria to be sure which companies you can use.

Among the advantages of Free File:

  • a fast refund (within 10 days with direct deposit)
  • 24/7 filing convenience

What if your adjusted gross income is too high to qualify for Free File? You can still file online, but not for free.

Wisconsin also has a free-file option. Go to for more information, including a listing of circumstances/forms that render you ineligible for it.
