Tax season opens February 12th to start filing your 2020 tax returns for your 2021 refund. After interviewing the IRS Communications Director, Luis D. Garcia, I needed to share all the good news. Did you know you can file your taxes free of charge if you earn less than $72,000? Yes, file free, here. I must say that when you Google “file taxes free,” there’s lots of click bait out there so make sure you visit IRS.GOV to file free. I’ll keep sharing the good news monthly so you can stay ahead and file on time. Best way to file? Electronically, because using regular mail is definitely a longer process.
