The MyfreeTaxes free income tax preparation program has been available since 2009. It is an online collaboration with United Way Worldwide using H&R Block software. Taxpayers prepare their own returns from the comfort and convenience of their home or office

A free federal and up to 3 state returns can be self-prepared by tax payers with an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $66,000 or less in 2017. There is no age limit. (Not available for prior year returns nor for foreign students.) 


To e-file your 2017 tax return or other electronic forms, you must verify your identity with your Self-Select PIN or Adjusted Gross Income from your 2016 tax return. For help, click the Electronic Filing Pin Assistance link below.
