New York FreeFile Tax Return

Are you a New York resident that files your own income tax return? If so, you may qualify to e-file your federal and state return at no cost with FreeFile. If you earned $58,000 or less in 2010, you along with half of all New York State taxpayers may be eligible.

You don't have to be a tax expert or a computer whiz to use FreeFile because the commercial software companies offer very user friendly and secure online programs. To be sure that you can FreeFile both your federal and state tax returns, you must access FreeFile on the New York State Tax Department Web site. Some people have accessed a FreeFile offer on the IRS Web site and were surprised to find that although their federal return is free, there's a charge for the state tax return.
