Representatives of a free tax filing program for low income taxpayers want to share this with consumers:
Workers who made under $57,000 a year can file their taxes free through MyFreeTaxes.com, a tax preparation program supported by the United Way, the Walmart Foundation and One Economy. The program lets consumer file their state and federal tax returns at no charge.
MyFreeTaxes.com also offers qualifying taxpayers free, in-person tax preparation help at local tax help centers nationwide or via the campaign’s National Tour vans, which are making stops in communities across the U.S.
The program's goal is to help low and moderate-income families maximize their potential refunds and take full advantage of any credits they are eligible to receive.
There is also a free mobile phone app for iPhone and Android smartphones to help people determine whether they qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Called MyTaxBack, the app is available at: http://mytaxback.apps.one-economy.com/share.
