File Your Taxes Free or Cheap

The IRS is again offering FreeFile to a select population (is it me or is that population getting smaller).

Now the stipulations are as follows:

"Free File allows taxpayers with a 2008 adjusted gross income of $56,000 or less to both prepare and e-file their federal tax returns for free"

You can also FreeFile if your AGI (adjusted gross income) is higher than 56,000 by clicking here.Use the downloadable forms available from the IRS and then FreeFile directly through the IRS website.

If this sounds too difficult there are a multitude of internet options available that charge nominal fees for you to enter your information. Just make sure to read the qualifications for their fees. Meaning, if your AGI is under $30,000 their fees are $9.95; otherwise, they might end up charging you a lot more. You can read about these options http://www.irs.gov/efile/lists/0,,id=101223,00.html.

The best tip I can give is to get started on your taxes. I know what a pain they are, but most of us "deal seekers" are not the best organizers, so tackle it early and get it out of the way so you can move on to bigger and better things. ;)

Good luck.
