I started the Turbo Tax thingy but have not finished yet. Just wondering if there is somewhere I can do it for free (Turbo Tax will cost me 19.99)

If I e-file in the IRS site do I have to pay a fee? Is it as easy as with Turbo Tax?

I used Turbo Tax for free by going to and to efile. They have a list of places to file. Like I said I used turbo tax and it was free but I paid $19.99 to direct deposit my check. I believe it would've been completely free if I had asked for a check via snail mail.

We also filed for free by going through the IRS site. Our state filing cost us $19.99, though. We direct deposited the returns and it didn't cost us anything, I think because we used a credit card to pay the filing fee instead of having it drawn from our return.

If your income is low you won't have to pay any fee. We used Turbotax through the IRS site and didn't have to pay anything. We don't have state taxes though. I believe the fee is only if you have a state tax return as well.
