How Much Will It Cost?


In this lesson, you’ll learn how much it might cost to file your tax return. There will be a short quiz at the end of this lesson to make sure you understand the material before moving onto the next lesson.

You can file a tax return for free using IRS paper forms or, if you qualify, the Free File or Volunteer Tax Assistance services.

If you’re not able to qualify for the Free File or Volunteer Tax Assistance services, online software may be an inexpensive choice.

If you’re not tech savvy, or just don’t want to take the time, the average cost to pay a professional to file your taxes, according to Ramsey Solutions, is around $220, but can be much higher if you have a complex tax situation.
