CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Turns out a lot of people are paying to file their taxes when they can be doing so for free.
A new report from the inspector general of the treasury department found just 2.4 % of eligible tax filers are using the free file system.
About 70-percent of tax filers can use an online system found at IRS.GOV to get free tax software from a variety of brand name firms.
Free file is open to taxpayers who have an income of 69 thousand dollars or less.
But you have to go to the free file web page at IRS.GOV as a starting point.
You can find a link to that here. Or on our website, KRISTV.com
