Though Feb. 29 makes this leap year’s already extended tax season a day longer, that doesn’t mean agencies offering tax preparation and filing services are waiting until the last minute to get word out about their campaigns.
The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, which has a vested interest in making tax payments faster and easier, is doing just that by accepting both state and federal returns filed electronically through several approved tax software vendors.
These include Intuit/TurboTax, H&R Block, 1040Now, OnLine Taxes and TaxAct, and links to all can be found at http://www.pafreefile.com. Some of these vendors have age and/or income restrictions, and only Intuit/TurboTax and 1040Now support all PA tax forms. Generally, filers with federally adjusted gross incomes of $62,000 or less can file electronically for free.
