Seniors and retirees who want to file their taxes for free or find free in-person tax help can look at a few programs available for eligible taxpayers.

In-person IRS help for seniors and low-income taxpayers
Eligible taxpayers can also have their taxes prepared in person for free, through these two programs:

Taxpayers can go to the IRS Free Tax Preparation page of IRS.gov and use the available site locator tools to find a TCE or VITA site near them.

 IRS Free File

Free File Fillable Forms
While IRS Free File has an income cutoff, taxpayers with income over $73,000 can use Free File Fillable Forms. Fillable Forms don’t include guided preparation, so taxpayers need to be comfortable completing their own tax forms.

Certain veterans can use MilTax
MilTax online software is available to certain veterans, regardless of income, and is offered through the Department of Defense. MilTax allows eligible taxpayers to prepare and file their federal income tax returns and up to three state income tax returns for free.
