How can I file my tax returns for little or no expense?

Many people have already filed their tax returns this year, but there are still some who have not.  There could be several reasons why someone has not yet filed tax returns: it’s too expensive or he/she will owe money or he/she doesn’t know how to file the tax returns or the tax preparer is closed during the pandemic or he/she just doesn’t feel like filing the returns.

If the amount it costs to file the tax returns through a tax preparer is too much, you might consider trying the free tax filing services offered by the IRS and the states.

For example, the IRS has options for filing your taxes online for free here.

If your income is $69,000 and below, the IRS provides a link here to software vendors who will file your returns for free.

If your income is more than $69,000, the IRS provides a free fillable form on its website for you to use.

The State of Missouri also has a list of software providers who will file your returns for free.

The State of Kansas allows you to file your state return online for free and also has links to software providers who will file your returns for free.

You can also download the free Federal and State tax forms for Kansas forms and for Missouri forms and fill them out yourself and mail your returns to the respective tax authorities.
