    MyFreeTaxes was started by United Way and partners, to promote free online tax filing when there were limited free online options, particularly for low- and moderate-income filers.  The site was generously funded by the Walmart Foundation from 2009 to 2015, and expanded in partnership with One Economy, National Disability Institute and Goodwill Industries International.  We have a partnership with H&R Block to continue to expand the reach of MyFreeTaxes and help as many people as possible file their taxes for free in a safe, convenient online experience.

    Through MyFreeTaxes, we have helped more than 1.1 million taxpayers claim every credit and deduction they deserve. These credits maximize filers’ refunds and provide important opportunities for individuals and families to build financial stability.
