Credit Karma now offers free tax filing.
Just sign up for a free account at https://www.creditkarma.com/signup/
and you can get 100% free tax filing for both federal and state returns. You can e-file, or print and mail your return. One feature you don't get is the ability to import last year's tax return. But it's a good choice for most people who have simple tax returns and don’t usually need support.
How can they do it? Credit Karma purchased AFJC Corporation, a private-label software provider that previously supplied the online tax software for Jackson Hewitt.
