I-CAN!E-file can help you file your taxes for FREE. Just answer simple questions on each screen and print your completed tax return. I-CAN! E-file can also e-file (electronically file) your return to the IRS (and your state if applicable). The Georgia Legal Services Program is partnering with I-CAN.
You can generally use I-CAN! E-file unless you have a foreign address, own a business, are a church employee or clergy member, or sold real estate in 2008. If you are in the military or you are disabled you may be eligible for tax credits that are not included in I-CAN! E-file.
You cannot use I-CAN! E-file to file your Georgia state return– but you can file your Georgia state return FREE, too, by visiting the website of the Georgia Department of Revenue. So, you would file for your federal tax refund online with I-CAN, then file your state return on another state website. While it may be annoying to file the two returns on different websites, you could save hundreds of dollars by doing the work yourself!
