Starting this 2014 tax season – the Internal Revenue Service will no longer offer free tax preparation services. The service suggests taxpayers to utilize online computer programs or non-profit organizations to assist them.
This is the IRS Statement:
"Due to resource constraints, fewer tax returns have been prepared at IRS walk-in offices in recent years. For several years, return preparation has only been available in a limited format – only offered at some IRS offices and not every day of the week at some locations. In addition, taxpayers had to have income below the Earned Income Tax Credit thresholds to receive this assistance.
With the growth in electronic tax preparation and continued resource limitations, the IRS will be directing qualified taxpayers during the upcoming filing season to more than 13,000 volunteer partner sites across the country rather than limited services at the IRS’s 250 walk-in offices. The IRS will refer taxpayers who visit the walk-in offices for tax preparation to the nearest volunteer site for tax return preparation.
In addition, the IRS Free File program on IRS.gov offers free e-file and tax software to help taxpayers prepare their returns."
