If you haven't filed your taxes yet, consider these tips:

  • If your household earned less than $66,000 in 2017, you can file both your federal and state returns for free, either using MyFreeTaxes.com or by scheduling an appointment with one of our IRS-certified tax prep volunteers.
  • MyFreeTaxes.com is completely free for individuals and families who earned less than $66,000! VITA is free for individuals and families who earned less than $54,000.
  • MyFreeTaxes.com is powered by H&R Block's premium software, so filing is easy and secure! The software scans for any tax credit that you're entitled to, making sure you get your maximum refund.

This past Wednesday and Thursday, we participated in the Amazing Give, a 24-hour period of giving in our community. This year, we focused on our ReadingPals program and we blew right past our original goal of $5,000! We raised more than $7,500 with the help of more than 115 donors!
A special thank you to University of Florida's Alpha Phi Omega Tau, Kimberly Brown, Campbell Spellicy Engineering, Inc. and The Bagel Bakery! With your support these funds will provide new books and literary games and activities to help second- and third-grade students in Alachua County improve their reading skills!
