WHY THE SERVICE WAS OFFERED TO ME FOR $30 AND NOW THEY ARE ASKING ME FOR $60

Not sure what service you are referring to  however ALL the fees increased on 3/1 when the early bird discount was removed and the fee you pay is dependent on when you complete the FILE tab step one.   If you had completed step one prior to 3/1 you could have secured in the discounted price at that time. 

 

TRY THE IRS FREE FILE SYSTEM IF YOU QUALIFY :

 

Here's how Free File works:

  1. Go to gov/freefile to see all Free File options.
  2. Browse each of the 10 offers or use a "look up" tool to help you find the right product. Each Free File partner sets its own eligibility standards generally based on income, age and state residency. But if your adjusted gross income was $69,000 or less, you will find at least one free product to use. Two products are in Spanish.
  3. Select a provider and follow the links to their web page to begin your tax return.
  4. Complete and e-file your tax return only if you have all the income and deduction records you need. The fastest way to get a refund is by filing electronically and selecting direct deposit. If you owe, use direct pay or electronic options.

You do not have to be EITC eligible in order to qualify for Free File. Any individual or married couple that meets the income limitation can qualify. First-time filers or college students are key users. Military personnel who meet the income requirement can use any of nine partner products. And seniors who want to file the new Form 1040-SR because they are over 65 and taking the standard deduction also can use Free File.

 

Remember, if you meet the income requirement you will find at least one free online product. To avoid fees for state tax returns, look for a partner that offers free state tax return preparation or check out your state's tax agency website to see if they are members of the State Free File program.
