College students may qualify to file taxes for free

INDIANAPOLIS- Thousands of college students, with adjusted gross incomes of $64,000 or less, may qualify to file their state and federal income taxes electronically for free using Indiana freefile (INfreefile).

For many college students, tax season is a stressful and confusing time of year.

INfreefile allows qualifying taxpayers to file their tax returns using the same question-and-answer style vendor software many pay to use – making tax filing fast and easy.
