One way to save money this year is to review tax filing options to ensure you're not overpaying for tax preparation or filing services. If your taxes are fairly straight-forward visit www.irs.gov for free filing options. New this year is a fillable forms option for taxpayers of any income. Taxpayers self-prepare and file IRS forms electronically, similar to paper filing, but the program performs the basic calculations for you.
IRS Free-File is for taxpayers with adjusted gross income of $56,000 or less in 2008. This Federal tax preparation and filing service has various options, some of which include free state filing, as well.
