If you are filing taxes on behalf of yourself or you and your spouse, then our Online Individual Filing system is for you. You can file your annual return here or make an estimated quarterly payment.
You'll need your federal and state tax documents and any W2's or 1099's that were given to you by an employer or other organization for which you worked in the prior calendar year.
Individual tax payers can create their own
accounts at the time you get started with your filing.

More helpful hints
Rows in your Excel file that have formatting commands like colors, gridlines, special height/width instructions, or other settings may cause PALITE to believe the row should have data, and be processed. You then get a list of errors telling you there should be data where you didn’t intend to have any data. You know those rows are supposed to be empty.
Sound familiar? Good. You’re in the right place.
PALITE reads through your Excel file until it finds a blank row…then it assumes there’s no more data that needs to be processed. The problem is that colors, gridlines, widths, and other settings make PALITE think that such a row should also have valid data.
The fix is to make sure the line below your data is empty. It’s okay to have formulas or other items below the blank line, but you must have a blank line below the data.
Note: To use these files you may need a third party application like
Adobe Acrobat Reader for PDF files or Microsoft Excel for XLS or XLSX files.
