McDonnell urges use of free tax preparation

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Gov. Bob McDonnell urged low- and moderate-income Virginians to find out whether they're eligible for a program to allow them to prepare and file their taxes for free.

The Virginia Free File program is a partnership between the Virginia Department of Taxation and a coalition of tax-software companies. It lets taxpayers who made less than $57,000 in 2012 to electronically their state and federal tax returns for free online using commercial tax-preparation software.

The governor's office says that most taxpayers who don't qualify for the program can still file their taxes online for free using the state tax department's fillable forms program.
