IRS to Offer a New Option to File Your Tax Return
The software will first be limited to 13 states

For its first filing season, the program, Direct File, will be available in only 13 states and won't be suitable for all taxpayers, the IRS announced on Tuesday. If you want to be one of the first to try it out, you’ll need a special invitation.
Selected taxpayers will get invitations around mid-February, an IRS official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the program before Tuesday's announcement.
