Last Updated Jan 31, 2023

The purpose of this guide is to walk youth through the process of filing their taxes for free with the support of and TaxSlayer, the IRS free filing site. 

Self-filing is a good option for young adults who: 

  • are filing a current year tax return (2022), 
  • are comfortable using online tax software, 
  • want to learn how to file on their own, and 
  • have earned less than $73,000 in 2022.
