Despite the government shutdown, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is gearing up for the 2019 tax filing season. With about two weeks left to go before the official start date, the IRS has announced that IRS Free File, a free online software program available through IRS.gov, is now open for business.
With FreeFile, taxpayers with income below $66,000 in 2018 typically have access to free tax prep software (eligibility may vary). That means that up to 100 million taxpayers, or 70% of filers, are eligible to use Free File.
