“MyFreeTaxes provides free online tax prep and filing assistance to taxpayers who exceed the $51,000 household income limit for our traditional in-person service,” said Julia Cheng, tax site program coordinator. “It’s also an alternative to scheduling appointments or attending walk-in clinics. Yes, it is H&R Block’s online tax preparation website, but it’s free for taxpayers with income under $58,000."

Taxpayers must register with an email address to prepare and electronically file federal and state returns. A free telephone helpline at 1-855-698-9435 provides additional assistance. MyFreeTaxes is sponsored by the Walmart Foundation in partnership with Goodwill Industries International, National Disability Institute and United Way Worldwide.
