QUOTE=hizzledizzle

There are always a million comments in these tax threads. Hope this doesn't get buried...


I hate seeing people get screwed into paying loads for tax prep because companies like Intuit and and H&R block lobby to make filing taxes a pain in the ass. Most people do not have particularly complex tax needs, and 70% of people in the US qualify for free tax preparation based on income. Feel free to copy/paste this info wherever relevant.


If you make less than $66,000 in Adjusted Gross Income you qualify for free tax preparation (looks like it's going to be $69,000 for the 2019 tax year). Below are some resources.

One of the best resources I know of is the non-profit The United Way. They offer tax preparation using H&R Block Deluxe. This allows you to file your Federal returns and up to 3 state returns for free. State filling is where you'll generally get charged a premium, and the Deluxe version they offer is a step up from H&R Block's "free" offering. Check it out here:
https://www.myfreetaxes.com

While you can produce your state return for free, you may not be able to e-file for free. If that is the case, you can certainly print and mail your return for free. Many states also offer their own free e-file solutions. Here is some info on which states offer free e-filing:

Different H&R block versions for reference:

If for some reason you'd prefer not to use the United Way/H&R Block, the IRS has a list of free tax preparation websites here:
https://www.irs.gov/filing/free-f...s-for-free

If you need more assistance the IRS makes volunteers available to assist people in doing their returns through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, and they offer assistance to older adults through the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program. Find a location near you here:
https://www.irs.gov/individuals/f...volunteers

Many city and county office also have free tax preparation available to citizens at libraries and government offices throughout tax season. Check your local government website.

The likes of intuit and block made you say that. They each spend milllions every year lobbying to keep us suckers paying for tax software when the federal government should be offering it for free. They used to give us the forms for free but don't even do that anymore, many states offer websites where you can fill out and submit your returns online, the software companies have people believing that they actually add value when in fact their illusion runs so deep that thei programs actually are doing nothing when it tells you it is checking for errors... they are literally doing nothing yet people think it is helping them. Google it! A total scam.
Use the free options if you can. Unfortunately none of the free alternatives have accommodations for schedule c or d as far as I know,

What makes you think they collect any more (or less) data than Intuit? These places are governed by the same regulations, and even if you opt out of the data sharing, TT still claims the right to share with its own companies...it just won't SELL your data without your consent (which it may or may not acquire with obfuscating questions during the process of doing your taxes). https://www.axios.com/what-intuit...67b54.html

At any rate, some of us have taxes too complicated for free tax programs...Turbo Tax itself has a free version that you can use if that makes you more comfortable and you are not someone with complicated taxes.

Some of us prefer to not have our intimate financial data to be forever wafting around out there in God only knows whose hands. "Free" may be far more costly in the long run to save a few bucks up front.

How Intuit spends $100 mil/yr on advertising and subterfuge to make it extremely difficult for you to find the free file version which 60% of Americans qualify for... Impactful Podcast story by Pro-Publica!!
www.stitcher.com/s?eid=62205295
note... This this piece of investigative journalism got the Senate to pull verbiage at the very last moment from a tax reform bill that would have made permanent the promised that the IRS would not create free tax software of their own to compete with private companies

That's pretty naive thinking a billion dollar company like Intuit wouldn't keep all your data too. As stated, they advertise and lobby Congress heavily to keep their products relevant
