IRS Free E-file for Those Who Make $72,000 or less



IRS Free File online products are available to any taxpayer or family whose adjusted gross income (or AGI) is $72,000 or less in 2020.

How IRS Free File Online works

The IRS Free File Program is a partnership between the IRS and many tax preparation and filing software industry leaders who provide their brand-name products for free as part of a 19-year partnership with the IRS. There are nine products in English and two in Spanish.

Traditional IRS Free File provides free online tax preparation and filing options on IRS partner sites. Each IRS Free File provider sets its own eligibility rules for products based on age, income and state residency. However, for those who make $72,000 or less, they will find at least one product that matches their needs, and usually more. Some providers also offer free state preparation.

For those whose income (AGI) is greater than $72,000 and know how to prepare their own tax return, they can use the Free File Fillable Forms.

For 2021, these providers are participating in IRS Free File:
• 1040Now,
• Intuit (TurboTax),
• On-Line Taxes (,
• TaxAct,
• TaxHawk (FreeTaxUSA),
• TaxSlayer.
