Free Tax Filing Online | Fast | Easy
Everyone Loves Free Tax Filing Online
There’s just no question about it, free tax filing online is the easiest and probably the fastest way to file your income taxes. It certainly is also more secure than mailing in a paper return, and for this reason alone, more and more individuals are opting for online electronic filing.
Another reason for the online method of filing, is that all that is required of you is to gather your tax forms, and sit down at your computer. We suggest that when gathering your income and expense forms, use the previous year tax return as a guide, and you normally won’t forget anything. In this way, you’ll be able to complete your tax return more quickly and you will have a more pleasant experience with free tax filing online.
Generally speaking, there are more opportunities to make errors when preparing a paper return, either mathematical or missing documents. Plus today, with the ever changing tax laws, it’s virtually impossible to keep track of all the changes. You can be assured that the online tax filing software is updated the hour any changes become effective.
Furthermore, if you’re trying to prepare a paper return, are you aware of all the deductions and tax credits that you’re eligible for? Remember, these too, often change every year and are based on the taxpayer filing status, exemptions, and even age. What a nightmare!
It’s just not a feasible option, nor is it normally a good business decision. As an example, if all of the paper documents, etc got you confused and frustrated, and you went to a CPA to have the return completed, any idea what that might set you back?
A simple joint tax return, two W-2’s, a couple of bank interest forms, and itemized deductions, could cost $200.00 to $400.00 depending on the area of the country where you live. Compare that to our normal cost of $39.95 for the federal return, with free e-filing, and many with gross income below $100,000.00, qualify for the free federal return. Big difference.
This just makes that option not very practical as it also involves making two trips to the accountant. One to deliver everything and one to pick up your copy and pay for the filing.
Free tax filing online is simply the way to go. It may appear a little daunting at first if you haven’t done it before, but it really is quite easy to do. You only have to answer a few interview questions and the intuitive software will determine the various forms that you need to complete. Most of the forms look exactly like the hard copy in your hands, so it is a simple task to enter the information.
In addition, after you have answered the interview questions and entered your financial information from your forms, the software will perform a comprehensive review and determine exactly any deductions and tax credits that you may be eligible for. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
All that remains now is for you to select the provider for free tax filing online. When you do a search and see millions of results, normally the first page contains the same ten vendors because they have the deep pockets and are able to pay the extremely high cost for getting their sites listed on the first page.
You really need to go beyond the first page on occasion, and who knows, you may find our site. Our cost of preparation is simple…the 1040EZ is free, the next up is the 1040A at 19.95, and then the 1040 at 39.95, no matter how complex or the number of forms required. You’ll see a big difference when you compare ours to one of the big five.
