United Way fights for the financial stability of every person in every community. Through MyFreeTaxes, we give people financial education and tools to build a solid foundation that improves their lives and the lives of their children.
For millions of Americans, tax refunds and credits are essential to their financial stability and success. The single biggest cash payment that low-to moderate-income individuals or families receive is often their annual tax refund. As a result, tax time is a critical financial inflection point, that when used strategically, can positively impact a family’s financial future. This results in thriving communities where everyone has more opportunity to succeed.
MyFreeTaxes is a free, safe and easy way for individuals and households to file their federal and state taxes for free. It is the only free, national, online tax filing product offered by a nonprofit. MyFreeTaxesprovides more forms than any other free product on the market.
