Earlier this year, ProPublica published a report showing how Intuit, the company behind TurboTax, was misleading users into paying to file their taxes — something that's supposed to be free in the first place for many. They, along with H&R Block, went so far as to keep the free versions from showing up in search engine results. This made it harder for users to find the free versions online, and many people ended up paying to file their taxes when they really didn't have to. Now, ProPublica reports that the IRS is taking steps against this.

These companies also opposed tax return simplification and killed that portion of the bill during the latest tax cut debate.

I've been using diytax.com for years now. Free and no stupid income limit
I think you are in for a big surprise. See the following:
In 2020, FreeTax.com (Which is DIYTAX.com) is no longer offering free services. If you attempt to use the FreeTax.com website, you'll be directed to Liberty Tax Online's filing software. The prices match the prices offered by Liberty Tax.

turbo tax offers free filing if you file a form1040ez - which is really W2 and 1099 int forms.

dont know why we are promoting this since TT does not have a limit of income either.

This works with accounts created in previous years.
Just make sure you did not start your 2019 tax yet like I did. I ended up asking via chat to delete my 2019 tax, logged off and logged in from myfreetax.com again and it worked

Thanks OP. I have been using TaxAct for about 8 years now and I am going to try either myfreetaxes or creditkarma this year. For those have used either or both, is there a noticeable difference or preference?

Would also like to know more about the limitations. The FAQ at:

https://www.hrblock.com/pdf/HRB-O...ployed.pdf

linked from https://www.myfreetaxes.com/suppo...es-include

does include a long list of forms and schedules. I suspect there will be a charge noted somewhere along the way if you need to use any excluded forms/schedules.

Schedule D excluded means anyone that gets a 1099-b (cap gains, income from investments) can't use this.

Thanks for posting. although it says all income levels on the homepage, it seems they haven't updated the faq [myfreetaxes.com] yet. i wish they would list the prices for those who do need schedule c/d/e, too.

Which means it can't be the Premium version or even the Deluxe version of HR Block, because doesn't Capital Gains start with Deluxe? Premium is for rental properties, self employment, trust income, and stuff like that.

A lot of people suggest this is Premium version of the software, but I don't see how it can be...?
