Do you need someone besides yourself to prepare your tax return but are short on funds? How does “free” sound? Frank Ellis, a Traverse City tax expert, has good news.
Traverse City, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2014 -- Free e-filing is available with the TurboTax Freedom Edition. The Free File Alliance program is being offered again for 2014, 2015. This program makes e-filing a lot easier for mid to low-income taxpayers.
Ellis explains that the Free File Alliance by the IRS is a simple public-private partnership between private tax preparation companies and the federal government. Anyone who qualifies for Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC), has an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of less than $31,000, or is on active military duty and has an AGI of $57,000 or less can qualify for and take advantage of the TurboTax Online Freedom Edition.
Intuit has supported the Tax Freedom Edition for over ten years, and over 22 million federal and state tax returns have been donated to mid and low-income households through the TurboTax Freedom Edition.
This year TurboTax has a special arrangement providing free advice from CPAs, IRS Enrolled Agents and tax attorneys through online chat or on the phone. TurboTax is the only software firm offering live one-on-one advice sessions.
The free TurboTax Online Tax Freedom Edition is available in 22 states. The states are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.
There is another resource taxpayers can use regardless of income: the Free File Forms at IRS.Gov. This is a very simple form, similar to a paper 1040 form that asks basic questions. All the taxpayer has to do is type in some numbers and the Free File Form will do the calculations.
