MyFreeTaxes Toolkit for Employers

Tax help for your employees is one more way United Way works together with you! Your employees qualify to receive free tax preparation and filing through one of our community resources. MyFreeTaxes is FREE for all simple returns. Users can file simple federal and up to three simple state returns for free no matter their income level.

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.

MyFreeTaxes: Free Online filing for your employees!

MyFreeTaxes is a free online software sponsored by United Way Worldwide and partners.  Your employees can file taxes from home at their convenience. For more info, click here.

You can also run MyFreeTaxes in a computer lab at your worksite to assist your employees in filing.
