Tricks to Saving Time & Money Overtake April Fools

Share Article

Despite all the April Fools’ pranks such as Google hiring “autocompleters” and WestJet using lighter planes filled with helium, Virginians will find they can save the most money and time by filing their state tax returns for free on eSmart Tax.

Free tax filing is no April Fools’ joke.

You may have seen it already: Google’s recent job openings for “autocompleters” to save you time on your searches; and WestJet’s plan to save money and fuel with lighter planes that are filled with helium. Not to be lost in the digital sea of #AprilFools jokes today, however, eSmart Tax is reminding all Virginians that they can save time and money by completing their 2010 state tax returns for free at Many will even be able to file their federal taxes for free, if they are under the age of 51 and made less than $58,000 (AGI) or if they have a simple W2 to file.

“Free tax filing is no April Fools’ joke,” said Ray Shively, Vice President of Online Products for Liberty Tax Service. “Taxes, in general, are no joke. We’re just trying to make tax filing easier and more affordable for Virginians every day of the year, so they can maximize their deserved tax refunds.”

With only 18 days left to file 2010 taxes without an extension, all Virginians can file their state taxes for free with eSmart Tax. And since not all have the incredible 32,000 WPM typing capacity of Google’s Autocompleters, the Virginia Beach-based e-filing service of Liberty Tax Service, eSmart Tax, will also offer extension filing online for those who cannot make the April 18th deadline. Extensions can also be filed for those citizens that are out of the country, perhaps on a WestJet helium-infused flight, on the tax filing deadline of April 18, 2011.

To learn more about free tax filing for Virginians this tax season, please visit or contact Ray Shively, Vice President of Online Products at Liberty Tax Service, at 1-757-493-8855 or ray.shively(at)libtax(dot)com.
