Intuit Offers Free On-line Tax Filing

Now in its fourth year, the Quicken Tax Freedom Project provided by Intuit, the maker of Quicken and TurboTax software, offers free on-line tax filing for all individuals and families with adjusted gross income of under $25,000, a $5,000 increase over previous years.

Using the TuboTax for the Web software, Intuit is able to provide an interactive question-and-answer process in which taxpayers can enter information about their tax returns. Taxpayers may then file the completed return on-line at no fee.

According to IRS statistics, nearly 60 million taxpayers, or 49% of the nation's taxpayers, qualify for the Quicken Tax Freedom Project. In the tax filing season of 2000, more than 764,000 federal and 375,000 state tax returns were filed as part of the Tax Freedom Project.

Access to the Tax Freedom Project is available from any computer with an Internet connection. The service for Year 2000 tax returns will be available through October 16, 2001.
