Help With A Deadline

A timely reminder, and some free help.

analog clockDeadline reminder #1: Taxes
To help you meet this deadline, on the IRS website there is a page called “FreeFile”, and here you will find the “partnership links” to the free versions of 19 accepted tax prep programs — of which H&R Block’s Free File and also TurboTax are available.
To qualify, you must have an Adjusted Gross Income of $56,000 or less.

Today’s free link: FreeFile at the IRS
Note: there’s two buttons on the page; “I will choose” and “help me choose”. Though all of the programs there are accepted by the IRS, I would recommend clicking the “I will choose”, and then selecting either H&R Block or TurboTax.

(I [me, myself]  don’t need to worry about taxes. I’m going to get rich playing games, and then I’ll just hire an accountant.. )

LA FIN DU what???

  1. TP,

    Thanks for the tip. Good timely advice; as always!!

    FYI: In some states the local libraries bring in well trained volunteers who provide free Tax prep and electronic filing services by appointment. I have seen them in action and (IMHO) they deserve honorable mention.

      Thank you for the tip.

      I have seen local TV stations, and other businesses/orgs offer similar Get-Help-From-A-Pro-For-Free events (and never heard a bad word said against ’em), but never made use of one myself. My hat is off to those who volunteer their services.
