(UNDATED) – With the individual tax filing deadline less than a month away – April 15, to be exact – the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) is reminding Hoosiers there is still time to file for free with the Indiana free file (INfreefile) program.
The INfreefile program allows qualifying individuals with an adjusted gross income of $66,000 or less in 2018 to file both state and federal taxes electronically at no cost. INfreefile uses the same electronic question-and-answer style most vendor software customers pay to use.
Authorized INfreefile vendors for this tax season include:
- FreeTax USA
- H&R Block
- OLT Online Taxes
Individuals should access their chosen vendor directly from the INfreefile website to ensure they are accessing the no-cost option from the approved vendors at www.freefile.dor.in.gov.
“Over 2 million Hoosiers qualified to use INfreefile in 2018, but less than 90,000 took advantage of this no-cost filing option,” explained DOR Commissioner Adam Krupp. “Our goal is to have as many qualifying Hoosiers as possible use the INfreefile program in 2019. We are committed to marketing this program throughout the state and making folks aware of this cost-saving opportunity.”
Filing electronically with INfreefile, or other electronic services results in faster refunds with most customers getting their refunds in as little as 14 days. Individuals who choose direct deposit may receive their refunds even faster.
Customers with questions or concerns about INfreefile or individual income tax may visit DOR’s website at www.dor.in.gov or call DOR Customer Service at 317-232-2240, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., EST for assistance.
