Mr. Tightwad’s so cheap, he filed his taxes months ago ... so he can earn interest on that refund, not Uncle Sam.
What’s that? You’ve been putting off your date with the tax man? Well, here’s some good news. If your adjusted gross income is $57,000 or less, you don’t have to pay a dime to get those taxes done. Instead, you can use Free File, the federal income tax prep and electronic filing program for eligible taxpayers. There are a number of different tax software programs that partner with the program and finding the one you like best is as easy as heading to www.irs.gov/freefile. And yes, it really is free, with no gimmicks.
