With several months left to file individual income taxes by the extended July 15 deadline, the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) wants to remind eligible Hoosiers to take advantage of the free tax filing program, INfreefile.
The INfreefile program allows qualifying individuals with a 2019 adjusted gross income of $69,000 or less to file both federal and state taxes electronically at no cost.
“As of last week, 94,300 Hoosiers have used the INfreefile program in 2020,” stated DOR Chief Information Officer Kevin Gulley. “That’s an increase of over 7% from last year.
“We want to continue to remind Hoosiers that INfreefile is still available, and is a great filing option for qualified individuals who can use this program.”
In addition to the 94,300 taxpayers who have successfully filed with INfreefile, there is still a significant amount of Hoosiers who may also qualify for this no-cost and easy to use program to file their state and federal income taxes.
Customers are encouraged to visit the INfreefile website directly at freefile.dor.in.gov to learn more about this great program and access the list of DOR-approved vendors, which include:
• FreeTax USA
• H&R Block
• OLT Online Taxes
• Tax Slayer
• Tax Act
• Turbo Tax
“Electronic filing has a long list of benefits including refunds being processed significantly faster than paper-filed returns, fewer errors and the ability to file anytime day or night from the comfort of your own home,” added Gulley. “DOR processes electronically-submitted returns and issues refunds in as little as 11 days.”
As a reminder to customers who have used the INfreefile program previously, all returning INfreefile users must create a new account for each tax filing year. Visit freefile.dor.in.gov to learn more and to create a new account.
