IRS Free File is now available for the 2023 filing season

The IRS is now accepting tax returns for the 2023 filing season, and IRS Free File – a program that makes brand-name tax software and electronic filing available to most taxpayers for free – is now open and ready for taxpayers to use.

Through this program, a public-private partnership between IRS and the Free File Inc, leading tax software providers make their online products available in both English and Spanish for free.

How IRS Free File online works
Each IRS Free File provider sets its own eligibility rules based on age, income and state residency. Taxpayers, including active-duty military, who made $73,000 or less in 2022 will likely find an offer from a Free File provider that matches their needs. Some providers also offer free state return preparation.

Taxpayers can go to the IRS Free File webpage at to find the right IRS Free File offer for them.

Taxpayers whose income is over the Free File threshold can still use Free File Fillable Forms
People who make over $73,000 can use the IRS’s Free File Fillable Forms beginning January 23. These are the electronic version of IRS paper forms. This product is best for people who are comfortable preparing their own taxes.

No computer? No problem.
IRS Free File products support mobile phone access. Taxpayers can do their taxes on their smart phone or tablet.

For 2023, the following tax preparation providers are participating in IRS Free File:
