Since 2009, more than 1.2 million of our nation's taxpayers filed using MyFreeTaxes, saving over $250 million in filing fees and bringing more than $1.7 billion back to communities in refunds. The more money that stays in the hands of people in our community, the more they are able to spend locally and that keeps more money circulating in Central Georgia.
For several years, United Way of Central Georgia has partnered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to provide FREE tax preparation services to those in need through our platform MyFreeTaxes. In the past, the service has been available to those individuals and households who fall under a certain income.
For the 2020 tax season (2019 tax year), we have removed the income cap for MyFreeTaxes. It's FREE for anyone of any income with a Simple return. This also includes state taxes. Note: Schedules C, D, or E aren't among the free forms currently available.
United Way of Central Georgia is also excited to announce the return of two Macon locations providing free tax filing services to those with moderate to low incomes. For information on how the VITA program works, click the VITA logo below.
