Free File

Free File for Tax Year 2017

If you qualify for Free File options to electronically file your federal individual income tax return with the IRS, you may also qualify for free electronic filing of your Vermont return with one of the Free File participating vendors.

To file your Vermont return, choose from one of the participating vendors. Please read their offers carefully and choose the offer that applies to your situation. Click on the vendor logo to be directed to the vendor’s Free File website. The Vermont Department of Taxes does not endorse any of the listed vendors.

Please note: You may use any of these vendors even if you are not eligible for Free File. However, if you are not eligible, you will be charged a fee to use the software. More vendors may be found on the IRS website but only those listed are participating with Vermont.

Follow These Tips to Ensure State Filing Is Free to Eligible Filers:

  • Most tax software vendors have two websites, one that is meant for use by the general public where a fee may be charged and the other for those eligible for Free File. Ready to File for Free?
  • File both your federal and Vermont returns through the same Free File access point. In other words, do not file your federal return through the IRS webpage or using one of the vendors listed, and then file your Vermont return through a vendor website.
