Time is Running Out - File for Free!

March 18, 2015

The April 15 deadline to file your taxes is fast approaching. If you’ve waited to file, there’s no need to panic. The Department of Revenue offers a number of resources to help Hoosier taxpayers breathe a sigh of relief this tax season.

In fact, nearly two million Hoosier taxpayers qualify to file their federal AND state taxes online for free with Indiana freefile (INfreefile). If your adjusted gross income (AGI) was $60,000 or less in 2014, you may qualify.

Over 80 percent of Hoosier taxpayers file electronically, and for good reason. Benefits of filing your tax return electronically include:

  • Faster refunds – electronic returns are processed in 10-14 days, whereas paper returns take 12 weeks to process
  • Get more or owe less – sophisticated question-and-answer style tax filing software may suggest credits or deductions you don’t know about
  • More secure – fewer people handle electronically-processed returns
  • Better accuracy – electronic returns have a two percent error rate, compared to a 20 percent error rate for paper returns
