Top 10 things you should know about MyFreeTaxes 

  1. The income cap is $66,000 AGI for individuals and families

  2. 80% of filers finish their taxes in less than 1 hour!

  3. “Bring on the complex returns.” MyFreeTaxes uses H&R Block’s Premium Software meaning users have access to most state and federal forms. 

  4. We have the same guarantees from H&R Block - 100% accurate returns, maximum refund, and top of the line security.

  5. MyFreeTaxes is completely mobile optimized; the taxpayer can file seamlessly between their phone, tablet, or computer. The software includes a refund reveal during the entire filing process so the taxpayer can see any changes throughout the process. A filer can snap a secure picture on their mobile device through the software to upload and auto-fill their tax documents. 

  6. The MyFreeTaxes logo will be displayed on the top left corner of every page during the filing process. This helps filers know they are in our product versus H&R Block’s paid software.

  7. Your organization does not need to do VITA to promote MyFreeTaxes; however, if you do run VITA and have a VITA grant, United Way Worldwide partners with the IRS so that every MyFreeTaxes filer in your geography will count towards your VITA goals.

  8. A goal of MyFreeTaxes is to empower the filer and help them gain confidence in their own ability to manage their finances. If a filer is not a regular email user, they may not be a good candidate for MyFreeTaxes
