How to file your taxes for free

Identify if you are eligible to deposit for free

Your income determines whether you are eligible to use IRS Free File.

If your adjusted gross income for 2021 is $73,000 or less, you qualify for guided tax preparation through the IRS. You can calculate your adjusted gross income by taking your income (salaries, capital gains, dividends, retirement distributions, business income, etc.) and subtracting all adjustments (student loan interest, child support, teachers, pension contributions, etc.). The $73,000 limit for the IRS Free File applies to single taxpayers and married couples filing jointly.

If your adjusted gross income is more than $73,000, your only IRS free file option is fillable forms, in which you fill out electronic forms yourself without guidance.
