Today is the last day to submit your 2021 tax returns either online, by mail and the IRS can help you file for free.
The IRS says about 30% of people wait until the final three weeks to file and about 11% will ask for an extension.
Did you know that you can use the IRS’s free tax-filing software instead of paying at least $100-200 for TurboTax or an accountant’s help?
IRS Free File helps you electronically prepare and file your federal individual income tax return for free using tax preparation and filing software.
IRS Free File lets you prepare and file your federal income tax online using guided tax preparation, at an IRS partner site or Free File Fillable Forms. It’s safe, easy and no cost to you for a federal return.
NEW: Tax filing could be free right now.
The IRS already has the authority to create a free, easy-to-use online tax filing tool, as @EWarren explains.
Instead, Americans will spend $31 billion this year for the privilege of paying services like TurboTax to file for them. pic.twitter.com/UDBTtAoPPL
