Advantages of FreeTaxUSA
While other companies charge for more advanced filing and potentially complex tax filing like handling self-employment (Schedule C), rental income from real estate (Schedule E), capital gains transactions (Schedule D), and various other types of K-1, HSA contribution, student loan, etc. With FreeTaxUSA all that and more can be handled both by its Free and Deluxe versions.
Covers all major situations like:
- File jointly
- Home ownership
- Itemized deductions
- Rental property
The forms you can access do not vary with the versions. The upgraded version is all about additional support rather than additional forms.
Free Edition Of FreeTaxUSA Software
Like any other free version, the “free” has its limits with FreeTaxUSA as well. Free extends to the following services:
- Federal Tax Return
- E-file Service
- Online Backup of Completed Returns
- Account Information Roll Over from the previous year
- Complex Tax Filing
- Printing of Tax Return
- Filing for federal Tax Extension
There is no additional charge except for a flat rate charge for state e-filing, so filers can simply multiply the number of states they need to file taxes with.
Other Chargeable Services With The Free Version:
- Amended Tax Return
- Priority Customer Support (optional)
- Professionally Printed Tax Return
- Printed & Bound Tax Return
The last two may come handy only when you need to present your tax returns for business or borrowing purposes.
Other than per state charge, again here as well, the only additional fees applicable are for the Professionally Printed Tax Return and the Printed & Bound Tax Return.
The Deluxe version comes with few other extra bells and whistles like priority live chat and customer support, filing unlimited amended returns and access to tax specialists and audit support that addresses questions like how to understand an audit notice and respond to it appropriately
FreeTaxUSA Support Options
- General guidance: Searchable knowledge base and Q & A database
- Free Tech support: Through phone or email; account message center and Chat option
- One-On-One Tax Help: On-demand tax help from tax professionals available with Deluxe addition
Pros & Cons
- Accuracy Guaranteed
FreeTaxUSA like other competitors guarantees the accuracy of their tax calculations else the interest and penalties payment is on them if you’re assessed by the IRS for any calculation error.
- Audit Assist
The Deluxe version provides Audit Assist through audit specialists and access to the Audit Center database of information to answer your questions should you be subject to an IRS audit process.
However, their Audit Assist tool is much more limited and does not cover state returns, and neither does any representative correspond directly with the IRS. They will only help to craft responses to the IRS, guide through what records to gather, and help you with what steps to take next.
- Online Backup and Account Rollover
FreeTaxUSA backs-up the completed returns online, even with the free version. This will automatically carry last year’s information over to your current year’s filing. This includes importing tax info from other software services like TurboTax, H& Block, and TaxAct.
They have a newly rolled out feature that allows for a PDF import of your prior year’s tax returns.
- Interface and Ease of Use
The interface is bare-bones with jargony help docs. Though less fancy, it has some basic features intact like a tracker for your estimated refund. But unlike other software options, it doesn’t allow you to jump the process. Filers need to go in order and once they enter some basic info in one section, then only they can back to make changes.
FreeTaxUSA doesn’t support the following:
- Nonresident alien returns (Form 1040NR)
- Foreign employment income (Form 2555)
- Preparers living outside the US when they file their taxes
- Casualty or theft gain or loss for business or income producing property
- Archer MSAs (Form 8853)
- At-risk limitations (Form 6198)
- Donations of high value property over $5,000
Limited Customer Support
Free version support is limited to email support, or get answers in the online forum. Only the Deluxe version has the online chat support. Else you need to purchase priority support.
Pay to Amend
Some of the additional services of FreeTaxUSA’s may cost extra, though the costs are marginal. If you need to correct a mistake or omission on your tax return while using the free version, then you need to pay, and once done, you get an unlimited amendment. However, this option is already included in the Deluxe version,
