Internal Revenue Service
The IRS provides a wealth of free data for taxpayers including tips, forms and publications, plus links to e-filing services. A few years ago, the IRS introduced its Free File program, which allows certain taxpayers to file their federal taxes on-line for free. Last year, 58% of taxpayers filed on-line, and this year the IRS has expanded the program to include more taxpayers and more tax services. To participate in the IRS’ Free File program, go to www.irs.gov/efile. You will find links to those services that allow you to file federal taxes on-line for free. The IRS home page gives you easy access to the most requested forms, including a W-9, W-4, and 1040. The section for Individuals includes instructions on e-filing and filling out a 1040 by hand, a discussion of recent tax changes, steps for tax rebate recovery, tips for deducting sales tax, and information on mortgage interest. Individuals can also learn about filing late, paying taxes on-line, tax relief in a disaster situation and taxpayer rights.
