WASHINGTON – April 15, or Tax Day, is only days away and if you haven’t filed your federal return yet, you might be eligible to use a free online service.

Free File is tailor-made for you if you are new to the job market or if your income falls within a certain bracket. “If your income is about $57,000 or less, you can use Free File and take advantage of name brand software from about 15 different companies to prepare your return and do it for free,” says Eric Smith of the Internal Revenue Service.

The way you access the service is to visit and click on the Free File link.
