PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
FreeTaxUSA.com, a competitor of
TurboTax® (NASDAQ:INTU) and H&R Block® (NYSE:HRB), has released free
tax software for the upcoming tax season. All major federal tax forms
are supported free of cost, without any income, state or other
restrictions. Complex and simple tax returns can be prepared and e-filed
directly with the Internal Revenue Service for free. An optional state
return can be purchased for $12.95. As an authorized IRS e-file
provider, the company has filed more than 9,000,000 free federal returns
with the IRS.
"We invite everyone to compare our product with other major brands. Most
people will see they get the exact same refund at a fraction of the
cost," Matthew Gause, Director of Marketing, commented.
The software now supports part-year and nonresident tax returns. This
allows taxpayers that lived in two or more states in 2013 to file
separate state tax returns simultaneously. To help customers save time
and avoid errors, the software carries forward information from the
federal portion of the user's tax return. Part-year nonresident tax
filing expands the free service to even more taxpayers. The cost for
state tax returns will remain one of the lowest in the industry at
$12.95 per state return. FreeTaxUSA is one of the only services online
to post the state filing cost clearly on the home page of their website.
Mobile versions of the software are accessible by visiting the website
with any smartphone or tablet. Visitors can sign in to their account,
prepare their tax return, or check their filing status using their
mobile device. Completed returns are generated in PDF format and can be
accessed and printed, at any time, for no additional cost.
For those needing prior year tax filing, the software supports 2012,
2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008 tax years. The federal return for past year
taxes, 2009-2012, is still free. State filing is between $9.95 and
$12.95 depending on the year. Taxpayers can prepare, print, and file
their prior year taxes using FreeTaxUSA's online service without the
need to download or install anything. Prior year tax forms are filled
out using the respective year's tax code.
