Filing Taxes: Not Fun, But Not Hard with

No one loves filing taxes, right? But this year, it’s easier than ever for simple returns if you use MyFreeTaxes® is a long-standing partnership of United Way and H&R Block, which provides the software. Anyone of any income level can file simple returns for free. That means simple federal and up to three state tax returns – without spending any money in tax preparation fees.

So far, MyFreeTaxes has helped 1.2 million people save $250 million in tax filing fees and brought more than $1.7 billion back in returns.

The software links you to a secure H&R Block website. It walks you through the filing process and screens for common tax deductions and credits you may be eligible for, like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Child Tax Credit. That’s part of our effort to make sure you get back every penny possible.

There is 24/7 chat help, and a helpline with *real people* (IRS-certified experts) who are available every day, 10 am-10 pm EST at 1-866- 698-9435.
