IRS Free File Program

Representative Shimabukuro,

With the April 15 tax deadline fast approaching, please help the IRS inform your constituents about the IRS Free File Program, which offers 98 million Americans a fast, free and safe way to do their federal taxes online.

All taxpayers making less than $57,000 can visit and use the industry’s top tax preparation software for free. Users get the step-by-step help they need to prepare, complete and file federal tax returns online – at no cost.

Additionally, taxpayers who use Free File with direct deposit may receive refunds in as little as 10 days—a welcome financial boost for struggling families in this economic climate.

The program is made possible through a partnership between the IRS and the Free File Alliance – a group of industry-leading tax software providers. Since 2003, the Free File program has delivered free tax services to more than 25 million people.

Free File is a vital service for the American taxpayer. We encourage you to help spread the word so we can serve as many taxpayers as possible. Please post a link to on your website, and use all of your communications tools to make sure your constituents are aware of this free tax service.
