What Is E-file's Pricing Structure?
E-file offers customers free versions of its tax software: the Free Federal E-file, the Deluxe Plus E-file and the Premium Plus E-File.
The Free edition is for taxpayers who can file with a 1040EZ Form. That includes single or married filing jointly who earn less than $100,000 and received less than $1,500 in taxable interest from investments. Although the federal return is free, customers do have to pay $19 to file the state tax return.
E-file’s Deluxe Plus version costs $18.99 for the federal return and $19 for state. It includes coverage for families with dependents, Form 1040A support, retirement income, and mortgage interest deduction.
The Premium Plus edition is priced at $34.95 for federal and $19 for state. This version supports all deductions and credits, business and personal income, and itemized deductions.
