Tax Info 2013 Made SoMe Easy from IRS

Love the new IRS Tumblr blog !  Maybe it's because the IRS headquarters is in Austin, TX, home of the the SXSW digital media and music festival and thousands of young tech savvy workers?  All I know is that the IRS is now using social media to deliver easy-to-digest filing information beyond just www.irs.gov , and it worked for me -- so I know you will probably find it to be simple and useful as well.  For example, I found out that I can e-file taxes for free, even if I make more than $57,000 -- just by watching a minute and a half video! And a graphic on the Tumblr blog links you directly to a site that gives you an online application to order historical tax information necessary for your federal student aid application (FAFSA).   It only took 3 minutes for me to   read, digest, follow and order.  Wish I'd had access to that when I was filling out my daughter's FAFSA forms (i.e., spending a Saturday in paperwork misery justified by motherly love).
