MyFreeTaxes allows anyone earning less than $62,000 to prepare and electronically file their federal AND state tax returns for free. This software is perfect for:
- Anyone who has an uncomplicated return (single or married, regular jobs, fully covered by health insurance during all of 2015);
- Those who have been using other self-preparation software which has been charging them a fee for the preparation and filing of state returns;
- Those who might have returns that VITA sites are not permitted to do;
- Those who are homebound.
MyFreeTaxes is a completely FREE service http://myfreetaxes.com/ Once the site is operational for the next tax season, there will be a helpline available.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not prepare your returns unless you have ALL of your income related documents – all W-2’s from jobs, all interest statements from banks, and so forth. Amending a return is challenging and you may not be able to prepare the amendment, particularly the State amendment, on MyFreeTaxes.
Our VITA sites will not amend returns prepared using self-preparation software unless there is room on our appointment schedules (which, if at all, will be in late March and only at limited sites). Also, if your income exceeds $62,000, the site may automatically transfer you to its fee based counterpart.
The Hawaii VITA and Financial Empowerment Program helps to promote MyFreeTaxes as an additional means for taxpayers to save money and as an alternative for those who cannot have their returns prepared at one of our sites. However, we do not operate this site.
