MyFreeTaxes: Helping Families with Free Tax Assistance
This tax season, United Way is partnering with Walmart, Goodwill Industries and the National Disability Institute to offer MyFreeTaxes, an online service to help households earning less than $60,000 with free state and federal tax preparation and filing services.
Now in its sixth year, MyFreeTaxes is the only online initiative allowing free tax assistance in all fifty states (and the District of Columbia). Through MyFreeTaxes, families can:
- electronically file their taxes through our software partner, H&R Block
- connect tax filers to local in-person tax preparation and filing assistance through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and AARP Tax Counseling for elderly populations. To find a free help center near you, please call 800.906.9887 or search by a location by clicking here.
- help people with disabilities connect with the National Disability Institute which has created systems to increase accessibility of free tax filing
Households earning more than $60,000 can also file their income taxes via MyFreeTaxes through H&R Block (fees apply).
