KNOW... approximately 70% of individuals are eligible to file their
taxes to federal and state absolutely free! We would like you to know about a free tax-filing
service that can save you $200 in tax preparation fees.
MyFreeTaxes is a secure,
mobile-optimized website that allows people earning $64,000 or less
(2016) to self-file their federal and state tax in all 50 states and
Washington, DC. Not only is this service FREE, it is operated by H&R
Block, an industry-leader in tax preparation. Additionally, there is a
helpline (1-855-MY-TX-HELP) and online chat support with services
available by IRS-certified specialists.
United Way has operated the
MyFreeTaxes site since 2009 in conjunction with Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance (VITA) sites, helping more than 2 million people bring $2.35
billion back to communities through tax credits. Community Action Duluth, a long-time agency partner with Head of the Lakes United Way, offers in-person help at tax time through
their VITA Program. Local community members are trained and certified
each year to assist the public in filing their taxes. Two volunteers
that have been with the VITA program in our community from the
beginning are Jeanette, HLUW's own Finance Associate/Pledge
Coordinator, and Ruth, a dedicated campaign finance volunteer at our
United Way office.
of tax filers qualify for free filing, most are unaware of this service.
Let's work together to ensure MyFreeTaxes.com is a resource that
everyone is aware of. Thank you for your partnership.
