The IRS recently completed its Direct File pilot program. This test tax filing initiative was designed to offer taxpayers a new, simple way to file their federal taxes directly with the agency for free.

By the final week of the 2024 tax season, the IRS says Direct File processed over 5,000 accepted returns daily, totaling more than 140,000 filings. Taxpayers collectively claimed over $90 million in tax refunds and reported $35 million in tax balances due. Millions of visitors reportedly visited the Direct File website to learn more about the filing option.
