Filing is always free for all supported forms and situations. There’s never a hidden fee or surprise. Ever. And if you have questions at any point during filing, we’re available 24/7 to chat for free.
We show you potential deductions you can take to help you get your max refund. But should you still receive a bigger federal refund or owe less in federal taxes when filing an amended return through another online tax prep service, we'll cover the difference up to $100 (min. $25) in the form of a gift card.
We show you only the sections that apply to your unique filing situation. And for simple W2 filers, you can even snap a photo of your W2 and your tax information will auto-populate into the correct fields on your return.
We automatically check our calculations for accuracy. But just in case, you’ll also receive Audit Defense free of charge.
