This being crunch time on taxes, we offer a final look at sites for the season, with heavy reliance on the IRS for the last word on what's deductible, and the place for forms you need at 11:59 p.m.
Tax man. It's hard to get through the tax season without a few visits to the Internal Revenue Service site. Remember, only www.irs.gov will get you the service's site; irs.com, irs.net, irs.org, and so forth might have a useful link or two but are commercial sites unrelated to the government resource.
For individuals. At the IRS page for individuals, look for the "free file" link. This year, any taxpayer can file online without paying a middleman's fee - a privilege restricted to lower-income filers in previous years. There's a caveat, though. While low-income filers have access to free tax-preparation software, everyone else must use simple online replicas of the paper tax forms. That means you'll have to do most of the math yourself. Still, if your return isn't too complicated, this is a slick way to go. Also, if you're old-fashioned and choose to mail in your return, you can fill in the online forms and then print them out.
