CalFile – A secure, accurate, free, and easy way to e-file your state tax return

Her: Honey, did you do what I asked you?

Him: You mean fix the fence? Or change the oil?

Her: No. Did you file our state tax return?

Him: Oh yeah. Took care of that in just a few minutes.

Her: What?

Him: Used Franchise Tax Board's “CalFile” program on the Internet.

Her: How much did that cost?

Him: It's free. I went to ftb-dot-ca-dot-gov, clicked on CalFile. We get our refund in a week.

Her: can have the rest of the day off.

Him: Ah, CalFile. It works for me.
