If you have an email address, and you regularly use the internet for such things as Facebook or online shopping, you should consider using this free online tax filing service. If you have filed your own taxes before, or if you are confident you know basic tax concepts like deductions, credits and exemptions, you should have no problem using this program. The online tax preparation program has been used and trusted for many years by tens of thousands of taxpayers, and is proven to be easy and reliable.
The online self-filing tax program is recommended for individuals who have earned income – W-2 or 1099 – to report. Nearly all other types of income – except foreign income – can also be reported using the online program. This includes business (Schedule C) and farm income.
Individuals who are not required to file a federal or state tax return, but are filing for the State of Michigan Home Heating Credit or Homestead Property Tax Credit SHOULD NOT use this online service and should call to schedule an appointment for Scan N Go service.
Collect the Social Security numbers for everyone who will be included on the tax return, and gather all your income and tax documents, and any information needed for any credits or deductions. Get out your copy of last year’s tax return. You will need to enter the Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) reported on last year’s tax return to use this online tax filing service.
