Benefits of Filing an Extension

Your extension is private and secure on FreeTaxUSA. The information you enter is always encrypted and transmitted securely directly to the IRS. Your account information will be saved until you are ready to finish your tax return. Sign in at any time to review or update your information.

"I want to thank you for preparing and efiling my federal and state taxes for me. I am a single mom and so my income is limited. Not having to pay for someone to do my taxes this year has saved me over $400. Thank you so much. I will definitely use you again next year."
