DCfreefile FAQs

DCfreefile will allow income-eligible taxpayers to choose one of several on-line tax software solutions to electronically prepare and e-file their federal and state returns for free. BE SURE TO USE THE DC WEBSITE TO ACCESS YOUR VENDOR TO ENSURE FREE FILING FOR YOUR FEDERAL AND STATE RETURNS. If you do not meet the criteria for DCfreefile, try DCfreefile fillable forms.

You are still able to file your extension or estimated tax returns and payments using eTSC or DCfreefile, in some cases. You may also be able to file Tax Year 2012 returns, however, not all vendors support extension or estimated tax returns and payments or prior year filing.

If you are married filing jointly or registered domestic partners filing jointly, or married filing separately or registered domestic partners filing separately on the same return, enter the name and SSN shown first on your return, then enter the name and SSN shown second on your return. Registered domestic partners filing jointly, filing separately on the same return must prepare a not-to-be-filed (mock) joint federal return before completing the DC return. If filing jointly is chosen, enter the total federal adjusted gross income of both spouses/partners on Line 3, Form D-40.
