freefile-logo-smIf you’re anything like me you’re just now starting to recover from all the spending over the holidays.  I start out only spending a little bit on gifts but then I see something else I just have to buy.  There isn’t anything like seeing my nieces and nephews faces when they open gifts.  I’m a sucker for it.  I’m Aunt Sarah, I have to keep my street cred up.  Shortly after the New Year I received my W-2 and was met with a few emotions about it. First I was happy.  I can usually get some things I’ve been putting off when I get my tax return.  I opened up the letter and sadness pushed the happy right out.   Right there in black and white my “worth” for the year.   I’m not saying I’m destitute or anything but who doesn’t wish they made more money.  If you’re reading this and you don’t, I hate you.  Just kidding….no, no, I hate you, ya jerk.

 This year I decided to file my taxes early.  I’m a big fan of doing anything I can online so I searched online for free tax filing.  I got tons of results.  Results varying from H & R Block to no name tax site 1040now.net.  There are lots of sites file your federal taxes for free but charge to efile your state taxes.  I’m a big fan of free so I searched a little more.  As it turns out if you’re poor you can efile your state taxes online.  The Indiana Department of Revenue site has links to filing.  I went to the in.gov for the INfreefile.  It then gave me options based on AGI, (adjusted gross income) and age. I looked for one that seemed creditable.  Within about 30 minutes I was finished, sort of.  I’m a little paranoid that I might miss out on getting money back.  So I went to three different sites and put all my information in and checked to make sure I would be getting the correct amount back.  I’m not saying you should do this.  I’m a little nuts.  I did find that one site did not give me the Indiana rebate I am supposed to get.  Yes, that’s right Hoosiers a $111 for each tax payer.  I’m had forgotten about how the state found millions of dollars.  If you’re from Indiana make sure you’re getting this money.  I decided to use Tax Hawk to file. Tax Hawk is for those who: Adjusted gross incomes of $57,000 or less, and aged between 23 and 65 on December 31, 2012.  It is very user friendly and step by step has you put in information off your W-2.  I choose the direct deposit option and should get my return with a few weeks if all goes well.  So go be proactive and file today!
