As a heads up, you may qualify for free filing through TurboTax (I am guessing other Tax Softwares as well?).

https://turbotax.intuit.com/perso...dition.jsp

They will use 1040EZ or 1040A (Simplified version of the 1040) and I think the cap is at 100k.

This TurboTax is the free edition not the premium edition which this deal is about. This deal is about Deluxe edition of H&R Block. So they are not comparable.

NOTE: Schedule C is not available in this H&R Block version, so if you are self-employed with more than $5k in expenses or a loss you can't use it (C-EZ is available though).

Important to note that the $66k is AGI, so it's AFTER 401k, health insurance, etc. So many people will qualify.

This is one of those few times in which I am disappointed that I qualify. : (

This deal is the tax return industries deal to stop the IRS from offering free populated tax forms to everyone. So it is not a deal at all. It is the law.

They spent millions to stop Congress from allowing the IRS to make tax filing easier for everyone by agreeing to provide free tax service for lower incomes and the people paying the most tax have to keep paying the companies to get their taxes done. Huge scam by the industry to screw those of us above the $66k AGI.

From a news site:

One, the government would continue and for forever offer free online tax filing to lower- and middle-income families in a public-private partnership with tax prep companies.

Sounds great, but hardly anyone has heard of this program, acknowledged Tim Hugo, executive director of the "Free File Alliance," a consortium of 13 private tax prep companies including Inuit and H&R Block. And that's because the IRS advertising budget is "$0" — so only a relatively small number of people take advantage of the program.

Two — and this is key — the bill would prevent the government from offering its own free alternative to taxpayers.

So, by offering free software used by only a few people, the tax prep companies can maintain the current difficult system and thus the need for their products. The Free File Act did not pass but the Free File system remains, and "return-free filing" is nowhere to be seen
