U.S.A. — A new treasury department audit calls the IRS “free file program” obscure and complex.
The IRS told our Washington Bureau improvements made this year should make the free filing program easier to use.
FULL IRS STATEMENT:
“The IRS is strongly committed to providing taxpayers with various viable options and tools, including free services, that help them effectively meet their tax obligations-whether online as currently supported by Free File or in-person as supported by the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. The IRS takes the recent concerns raised about the Free File Alliance very seriously. The IRS is identifying short and long-term actions that can help improve Free File for the nation’s taxpayers.”
