The IRS discontinued the IRS-Partnership program some 20 years ago and focused
entirely on promoting the Free File Alliance. This has elliminated UDS Federal
advertising; but also it has been liberating for UDS in that UDS is no longer
constrained by IRS policy dictakes. Previously, IRS policy dictated a limit of 5 efiled
returns. UDS no longer is bound by that constraint; taxpayers can use UDS software to
to efile (or print and file) in whatever way they choose.
