Just a reminder to all of you who are anxious to file your tax returns – You can file NOW!
And the best part? You can file your federal tax returns online for FREE at the following places:
There may be some income limits to qualify for the free tax prep and you may have to pay an additional fee ($15 to $30) to file your state income tax return, so be sure to check it out before you file.
You can also visit your local library or community center for free tax preparation services through the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program. Trained volunteers will help you figure out your taxes if you’ve made less than $50,000. In addition, free volunteer tax preparation for seniors is available through AARP, and to members of the military through the Armed Forces Tax Council.
The sooner you can file, the sooner you will get your refund (or be able to lay out plans for payment if you owe). If your tax return is a bit more complicated, you should check out how to save money on getting your taxes done for additional money-saving tips.
