The IRS is developing a free electronic filing tool of its own that would — at long last — give American taxpayers an alternative to costly tax preparation services.
Of course, the for-profit tax prep industry is aggressively fighting this commonsense and popular idea. And, at the moment, the IRS’s service is only a pilot program.
Americans should not have to pay profit-hungry companies in order to use a program to file taxes online. Thank you for developing a free alternative. We encourage you to make this software broadly available as soon as possible so that everyone will have a public option for electronic tax filing.
Please share the petition with your network, and read our report now.
We must stop the billionaire Koch brothers from using their immense wealth to influence university research and spread their corporate-friendly ideology.
