In addition to our free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, now in operation, CAA also supports the use of MyFreeTaxes.com
, an IRS and United Way initiative.
MyFreeTaxes.com empowers low-to-moderate-income taxpayers under the EITC income threshold of $57,000 to complete their own taxes using this secure, intuitive website. Since 2009, more than 1.2 million taxpayers have taken advantage of this service.
What you need to know about filing with MyFreeTaxes.com:
For the 2021 filing season, when taxpayers visit MyFreeTaxes.com, they will be provided options to file their taxes “By Myself”, “With Assistance” or “I’m Not Sure”. Each of these options leads the taxpayer to a triage location where the taxpayer will be asked to provide some basic information, allowing MyFreeTaxes.com to route their request to the appropriate tax preparation model (either a VITA/TCE site or the FSA TaxSlayer software).
After providing the basic information requested in the triage section, taxpayers will receive an email from MyFreeTaxes.com with a link and instructions on how to proceed to complete their tax return for free.
