Indiana Department of Revenue Offers Tax Tips, As Filing Season Approaches

The 2018 tax season is about to get underway, and the Indiana Department of Revenue has a few tips to help save you some money. Taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $66,000 or less may file for free, with the INfreefile program. The Department of Revenue expects that almost 2 million Hoosiers will qualify for free filing this year.

State officials add that filing electronically tends to be faster, safer, and more accurate than using paper returns. But if you do want to file on paper, printable forms for both individuals and businesses are available on the Department of Revenue’s website.

Elderly and low-income taxpayers may also qualify for tax preparation help through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs. The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program also provides help to those over 60, as well as those with low and moderate incomes.
