MyFreeTaxes Toolkit for Employers

Tax help for your employees is one more way United Way works together with you! Your employees may qualify to receive free tax preparation and filing through one of our community resources. Together we offer Free Federal and State Online Filing for anyone earning less than $66,000 and In Person Filing for married couples filing jointly who make $55,000 and under, and single people who make $30,000 and under.

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file. EITC reduces the amount of tax you owe and may give you a refund.
