Free File your income tax return

Electronic filing for income tax is closed; you cannot submit e-filed income tax returns until the new filing season opens in 2019. We anticipate the season will open in mid-January. You will be able to e-file for tax years 2016–2018.

Good news for 2019!

We're partnering with the Free File Alliance again to offer you more options to e-file your New York State income tax return—at no cost.

Will I be eligible for Free File in 2019?

If your 2018 income is $66,000 or less—yes! You don't need to wait until mid-January to get started; review the IRS guide Steps to take now and gather the documents and information you'll need to prepare your return.

If you earn more than $66,000 in 2018, see Other e-file options to learn about your electronic filing options.

Remember, no matter which option is right for you, e-file is always the fastest, easiest, safest choice!
