Good news! If you’re terrified of tax prep costs, we might have just the solution for you. This year, Goodwill Industries is partnering with MyFreeTaxes.com to provide qualified candidates with the tools they need to file their taxes on their own, online for free.
Don’t let fear of fees keep you from filing. We’ve teamed up with MyFreeTaxes to give individuals and families earning under $57,000 a year access to easy, free, online tax prep.
To qualify for free tax prep, you (or your family) must make a combined income of under $57,000 a year and live in the Greater New York and Northern New Jersey area. You’ll a need valid email address and Income Forms (w2’s 1099’s, 1098’s) to file.
You may not even know all the credits you qualify for. To find out more about the Earned Income Tax Credit
, for example, check out MyFreeTaxes’ page: http://myfreetaxes.com/tax-help/tax-credits-for-working-people/
Through working with MyFreeTaxes, we’re hoping to increase access to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), increase the use of online self-tax preparation, and to increase outreach to previously under-served populations
Powered by the Walmart Foundation – in cooperation with Goodwill Industries International, the National Disability Institute and United Way Worldwide – MyFreeTaxes have helped 4.5 million families claim nearly $6 billion in tax credits and refunds
since 2009. We’re proud to be able to help our community by offering this resource as a free tax prep option to those who qualify.
