SAN DIEGO — The IRS and its private-sector partners have announced the opening of this year’s Free File program with a series of improvements and changes. The free tax preparation and free electronic filing initiative begins its fifth year with consumer-friendly features and expanded services for Spanish-speaking taxpayers.
Seventy percent of the nation’s taxpayers – those with an adjusted gross income of $52,000 or less – are eligible for Free File. Each company sets its own criteria for who can use the service. The program is available only through IRS.gov.
