IRS Free File Still Available For Last-Minute Filers

SEATTLE, Wash. - The tax deadline is fast approaching and even though the April 17 deadline offers a couple of extra days this year, the IRS wants to remind taxpayers who haven't filed yet that IRS Free File is still available.

"For taxpayers who find doing their tax returns too taxing, the IRS Free File program provides free software to prepare and e-file your taxes at no cost," said IRS spokesman David Tucker II. "It's easy to get started at www.IRS.gov/freefile and get those last minute tax returns filed for free."

Here are four tips about IRS Free File.

Free File Does the Hard Work for You: Free File is a partnership between the IRS and leading tax software providers who make their brand-name products available for free. You don't need to be a tax expert; the software will help find tax breaks for you, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. The software asks the questions; you supply the answers. It will find the right tax forms and do the math.

Access to Free File products: You must access the Free File products through www.irs.gov to avoid any charges for preparing or e-filing your federal tax return. Once you choose a Free File software product, you'll be directed away from the IRS website to the partner's site to prepare, print and e-file your federal return – all for free.

Free options for all: There is a free option for everyone. People who make $57,000 or less, which includes most Americans, can use the Free File software. People who make more can use Free File Fillable Forms, an electronic version of IRS paper forms.

Free Extensions: Taxpayers who can't make the April 17 deadline can request an extension. Making the request is easy and free through IRS Free File. Just look for "free extensions" in the company offers. Remember, this is an extension of time to file your return, not to pay. If you think you owe, make a payment with your extension request.

    A Spokane business owner says enough is enough after finding human feces in front of her doorstep three days in a row. The incidences happened at Neat Old Stuff located at 3rd and Bernard. The shop's owner, CP Phare, has been in the same location for the last decade and says suspicious activity has ramped up in the last year, but nothing like what's been happening over the last few days. "There's like surprise packages usually two-to-three times a week,"
