It's time to start thinking about collecting data to file your 2021 tax return.

People who are looking for a deal to prepare taxes online, who are looking for a deal themselves, see a lot of promotions.

It’s a marketing battle for tax free deals online between some of the big names. But you’ll need to review the restrictions and rules to see which deal actually saves you money and what doesn’t.

For example, Gig workers or the self-employed often don’t qualify for free services and can be directed to more expensive online options at places like TurboTax, H&R Block, and TaxAct.

Meanwhile, Jackson Hewitt raises his hands, drops all the “free” offers and charges one flat price for all in the name of simplicity.

$25 flat rate

Jackson Hewitt Tax Services offers a flat rate of $25 if you pay your taxes — federal and state — online. The fee covers both state and federal, and as many state revenue as needed. If you need to file multiple state returns, you’ll still pay one flat fee.
