FreeTaxUSA made the filing of my extension easy in the spring. Via email, I received reminders of my deadline. When I filed, the program anticipates what info I need and makes the completion of the forms extremely easy and fast.
worked great was able to file an extension and was reminded to file before deadline. Liked that I could file state tax.

I started early and asked for an extension to work through some complications and was able to pick up where I left off without a problem. Easy to use.

I should have got the extension! This process was 1000x quicker than expected! Thank you
Due to the extreme winter we experienced in Wisconsin this year, my wife and I extended our stay in Arizona into April. I extended since we didn't have any of our tax filing info with us. FreeTaxUSA made that process easy.
