Since paying our taxes is something we must do as taxpaying citizens of the United States, it is best to do it as soon as possible. Submitting our tax returns to the IRS quickly will help us avoid many, many problems in our lifetime.
Now we find that this is even faster and easier, thanks to the IRS‘s way of filing our tax returns. If you qualify to use this program, you will be able to have your tax return ready in no time and without leaving your home.
The IRS administration itself has confirmed that this type of process is totally reliable. There are no security or difficulty problems when using it. This is a clear advantage over previous years where we could not file our taxes through the online service.
IRS Free File for filing taxes
Only a number of United States citizens can use this IRS system. Not just any taxpayer can do so, as there is a requirement that must be met. To be able to use this IRS Free File it is necessary to have earned $73,000 or less during the attorney year 2022. Only in that case we will be able to file our tax return through this system.
There are two ways to use IRS Free File:
- Use the software directly, which will help us through the entire process.
- Complete 100% of the forms ourselves and send it through this way.
In either process we can have our tax return ready in just 21 days. This happens as long as the IRS has to send us a tax return.
Remember that this system is totally free. If you go to a website where they try to charge you some money for using Free File, do not use it. There are many scammers trying to get our information to get our Social Security number or our tax refund.
Where is my tax refund?
After you file your taxes, either through IRS Free File or in physical form, you can check where your tax refund is. However, when doing it through Free File we will have immediate access to this information, since everything is automated.
The tax refund money can take up to 21 days to reach the taxpayer. However, since we can check the situation all the time, at least we are not uninformed about it. Remember that you can file your tax return until April 18, unless you have an extension of time from the IRS.
