Filing your tax return
has never been easier.

Relax with Rapidtax!


When can I e-file my tax return?

A current year return can be e-filed during January through the e-file deadline in October. After the October deadline it becomes a prior year return, the IRS then requires these returns to be signed and paperfiled.

When is the last day to file my tax return?

Every year the tax season ends around mid April. Returns with a tax due need to be filed before the end of tax season to avoid late filing penalties. To extend the deadline to October, an IRS extension must be filed in April.

Have used RapidTax for five years running. Now my three twentysomething children use the service as well. Easy to use, great service, excellent value.

Awesome! Tried TurboTax, got to the end of my simple file, and they wanted to charge $50. Didn’t have any surprises here!
