Direct File is a historic new service from the IRS that will let people in select states electronically file (e-file) their taxes directly with the IRS online for free. It’s available in English and Spanish, works on a mobile device as well as it does on tablets and personal computers, and includes dedicated support from IRS customer service specialists. Direct File is now available in Florida!

Direct File is launching as a pilot, which means it will support some but not all tax situations. Most simple returns and key credits are included, but it won’t include self-employment income, business expenses, itemized deductions, and some other more complex tax situations. It is available to people living in 12 states, including Arizona, California, Florida, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming.

Taxpayers can find more information about the Direct File Pilot using these resources:

IRS Direct File is an exciting opportunity for people to access tax filing services that are simple, secure, accurate and always free. Taxpayers can visit to find out if they’re eligible and get started. The Direct File team wants to hear thoughts and opinions from Direct File users to make it a better experience. Filers can email Direct File Feedback by April 15, 2024 with name and “Direct File Feedback” on the email subject. Participation is confidential and will not affect the user’s taxes.
