IRS Free File: the smart, free way to file taxes.

Now, more than ever, it pays to be smart with money. And when filing taxes can cost less than a penny, there's no smarter move than using Free File, exclusively from the IRS, to do federal taxes. Free File offers both brand-name tax software and online fillable forms that even check math.

The software, offered through a public-private partnership between the IRS and the Free File Alliance, a consortium of software providers, can be used by taxpayers who had an adjusted gross income of $57,000 or less in 2012 – that's 70 percent of taxpayers. Online fillable forms are the electronic alternative to paper IRS forms and have no income limit on their use. Taxpayers who choose direct deposit can expect a refund fast. Federal tax refunds put thousands of dollars in taxpayers' hands and provide an annual $300 billion boost to local economies.

Both Free File options are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, starting January 30, 2013.
