Tax Commission News Release

File your income taxes online for free

BOISE, IDAHO — Jan. 24, 2011— If you want to file your income tax return for free online, check out the Idaho State Tax Commission’s website at The site features software companies that offer qualifying taxpayers free electronic filing for both their federal and Idaho income tax returns. To get a list of providers and their eligibility requirements, click on the “Free income tax filing” link on the home page.

Idaho has joined with the Internal Revenue Service and software developers to provide this free service to taxpayers.

“If your adjusted gross income is $58,000 or less, you can file for free through our site for both the federal and state return,” said Doreen Warren,revenue operations administrator for the Tax Commission. She added, “Remember, you need to go through our site to get both returns for free.” 

Electronic filing is a fast, easy way to file taxes. It produces virtually error-free returns because the program does the math for filers. It also allows taxpayers to get a quicker refund than if they file by paper.

Last year almost two thirds of Idahoans filed their individual income taxes online.
