NOTE:
Keep in mind that if your gross adjusted income is $69,000 or less, you can go to www.irs.gov/free-
file to participate in Free File. (Remember, your adjusted gross income isn't necessarily your salary. 
It can be lower than your gross income after factoring in pre-tax contributions to a 401(k) or health savings accounts.  If you have a good deal of captial gains from investments, your adjusted gross income would be higher than just your income from your job).
