Free federal and Rhode Island e-file if you qualify

Still haven't done your taxes yet? The Rhode Island Division of Taxation now offers links to four independent tax-preparation companies through which you can prepare and file both your federal and Rhode Island returns online at no charge.

The offers aren't for everyone; you must meet their qualifications. To take advantage of the offers, you must go through the links on the Tax Division's website -- where you'll also find details. The companies behind the offers are part of the Free File Alliance, a consortium of tax software providers that make versions of their free-file products available through the Internal Revenue Service.
