IRS reports good news for US taxpayers
The United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will allow more people to file tax returns for free in 2020, writes USA Today.
On Monday, the IRS made an addition to its Free File program, which is an agreement with a dozen tax preparation firms including H&R Block and TurboTax, Intuit's parent company.
The program offers free software to prepare for paying taxes to people in the United States with incomes below $ 69, which is about 000 percent of the country's population.
The IRS update prevents tax registration services from making it difficult for users to find out if they have the right to file their taxes for free.

A 2019 ProPublica investigation concluded that TurboTax and H&R Block deliberately excluded the free version of their registration services from Google search results.
It might be easier to file taxes this year, and that's bad news for H&R Block.
According to the new reform, companies are “prohibited from engaging in any practice that would result in the Free File member’s landing page being excluded from a regular Internet search,” IRS said.
ProPublica later reported that TurboTax has done everything for 20 years to keep Americans from filing their taxes for free.
