Default Filing tax returns?

I just got my tax return forms from work and was wondering what website I could use to file for my state and federal returns. Have never done it before so not sure what I am doing. Want it to be free

Federal returns will not be accepted electronically until at least January 30th. Blame this wonderful thing called the Fiscal Cliff.

I think this is fairly common each year. I can't recall being able to electronically submit my return any earlier than this, but that may just be my experience.

It isn't common (as in, January 30th is quite delayed). I have been preparing tax returns for profit for the last 7 years, and the date changes every single year. Sometimes it's as soon as you get your documents, other times it's when the IRS is ready to accept them, depending on what's going on in Congress. When Congress was on furlough (sp?), the acceptance and due-by dates changed.

As far as we know, they won't be accepting them electronically until January 30th. So, you won't be getting your refund (or your new computer ) until at least the second week of February.

It depends on the software, honestly. If it's smart enough to incorporate your inputted information into any newly updated forms without you having to do anything, then yes, you are correct. They just won't turn around and submit them to the IRS until the IRS is ready to handle them.

Go to irs.gov an there will be a link to websites where you can file for free. There are stipulations for some such as age or AGI.

I do either Turbotax or HRBlock online, depending on which gives me the least hassles that particular year...

My broker has until January 31th to provide my 1099, so I can never file before that time.

I've used H&R online for the past 7-8 years. I'm a big fan. The program is probably the same as TurboTax.

You both need to get professional advice on this. If you qualify as his dependent, you cannot claim yourself, even if your father declines to claim you. I can't give you advice, because there are a lot of things I would need to know first, but taxes get sticky when it comes to determining dependency, and even stickier if the Earned Income Credit is involved.
