Free Tax Filing

Ongoing

Online

The United Way of Traverse City and the NW Michigan Community Action Agency announced the launch of this tax season’s MyFreeTaxes site. This marks the tenth year that United Way and H&R Block have partnered to provide free tax filing services. MyFreeTaxes is available for federal and state taxes for individuals or households earning less than $66,000 in adjusted gross income (AGI). The mobile optimized MyFreeTaxes site enables most filers to complete their taxes in under one hour for free. Taxpayers earning less than $66,000 can enter their data through MyFreeTaxes.com, which links to a secure H&R Block website, making it easy to complete their taxes from home, at work or on mobile devices.
