Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,I,C-East Northport) announced today that the Internal Revenue Service and the Free File Alliance have partnered to offer free tax-preparation software on www.irs.gov. All taxpayers making less than $57,000 are eligible, and users get the step-by-step help they need to prepare, complete and file federal returns online at no cost.
Not only is the program completely free and secure, but taxpayers who use Free File with direct deposit may receive refunds in as little as 10 days. Plus, you can file your taxes at any hour, day or night.
“No one likes tax season, so why make things more complicated than they need to be?” said Raia. “With their Free File online software, the IRS allows taxpayers to finish their tax returns fast, 24 hours a day. I strongly encourage Suffolk County taxpayers with incomes under $57,000 to take advantage of this time-saving option today.”
