Va. ends free online tax-filing service
The state's free online tax-filing service will disappear under a new law that will shift the task to private businesses, which will be able to charge for the service.
Nearly 97 percent of Virginians who filed state taxes were eligible to file electronically under the 10-year-old iFile program. This year, about 300,000 are expected to do so by the May 3 deadline. But under the new law, the Virginia Free File program will be run by a group representing for-profit tax-preparation vendors, which will be able to charge fees to those making $57,000 or more.
