Do you qualify for Free File?

If you (and your spouse, if filing jointly) made $66,000 or less in 2017, you qualify to file both your federal and state return for free using one of the software products below.

Make sure you're filing your Virginia income tax return for free:

  • Choose the software you want directly from this page. If you access it from somewhere else - including the IRS's Free File page - you may be charged a fee to file your state return.
  • Review the qualifications (age, income, military experience, etc.) for each software option to make sure you're eligible to use that software for free.
  • If you've used the paid version of the software in the past, you may need to create a new account to file for free.
