Qualified Dependent for Tax Year 2018

You can no longer e-File a 2018 Federal or state Income Tax Return. However, you can complete and sign the 2018 IRS Tax Forms online before you download, print, and mail them to the IRS. Select your state tax forms here.

Access current year tax calculators to estimate not only your tax return, but also to get answers to many other personal tax questions. These are updated each year to reflect the current tax year!

Prepare and eFile your current Tax Return by the Tax Day Due Dates. Generally, October 15 is technically the last e-file day, however, tax penalties might apply if you owe taxes. Rather than handle tax forms, prepare your return entirely online and let the eFile Tax App work for you; sign up for a free account and eFileIT!
