The IRS gov efile is a service that is free for any and every American tax payer to file their tax return by electronic means. This service is not only available for the standard returns that are due April 15, 2010, but also all of those Americans that have requested an extension that have to be filed by October 15, 2010. After that time, this service will no longer be available for sending in the 2009 tax year income tax return.
For the tax payer that bought a home in 2009 and have taken advantage of the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009, there are new requirements including the amending of their 2008 tax year tax returns. This all can be done with the e-file system.
For those citizens that have used this electronic filing system before, it is advisable that you read the new rules and regulation. These were posted on September 14, 2009 and involve tax payers that use the internet to collect tax information from a third party.
If your income is less than $57,000 for your adjusted gross income, the IRS has made available to you free tax preparation software to assist in the filing of your tax return.
If you made more than that in the PDF fillable forms, the free filing service is available online at the IRS.gov website. The information provided was last updated by the IRS on March 11, 2010.
The IRS gov efile is available to all American tax payers regardless of their income, free of charge. This is to encourage the filing of tax returns by electronic means.
Of course, the above is not legal or accounting advice — it is for informational purposes only. Before making any decisions regarding legal or tax matters, it is vital that you consult a licensed professional lawyer or tax accountant.
