File Your Taxes for FREE!

March 8, 2013 - TaxTalk Blog

Looking for a simple way to do your taxes? Trying to save time and money? The answer is INfreefile, and it’s available at

Indiana continues to offer a free tax filing service through INfreefile, a cooperative effort with the national Free File Alliance and the IRS. Eligible Indiana taxpayers can file both the federal and Indiana individual tax returns using highly interactive and easy-to-use web-based applications that speed both returns and refunds.

If your adjusted gross income (AGI) was $57,000 or less during 2012, INfreefile can offer you free federal and state tax filing online. All you have to do is click the vendor of their choice and complete your tax returns online. It’s that simple!

This year, there are seven vendors that create an easy and more secure way to file taxes online. The vendors participating in INfreefile include 1040 Now, H&R Block, OLT OnLine Taxes, Tax Act, Tax Hawk, Taxslayer and Turbo Tax.

Why file electronically you may ask? Because there are so many advantages to electronically filing:

  • Faster refunds—e-filed returns are processed in less than 2 weeks, while a paper return can take up to 10 weeks
  • Better security—fewer people see your information
  • Get more or pay less—e-filing software may suggest credits and deductions you might not have known about
  • Better accuracy—electronic returns have a 2% error rate versus 20% for paper returns
