Taxpayers who want to file both their federal and state income tax returns online for free should visit the Idaho State Tax Commission website at and click on the “Free individual income tax e-file” link (under the “Quick Picks” section). Electronic filing is a fast, easy way to file taxes and allows taxpayers to get a quicker refund than if they file by paper.
