    Mesa County, Co —  No one loves filing taxes, right?

    But this year, it’s easier than ever for simple returns if you use MyFreeTaxes.com

    MyFreeTaxes® is a long-standing partnership of United Way and H&R Block, which provides the software.
    Anyone of any income level can file simple returns for free. That means simple federal and up to three state tax
    returns – without spending any money in tax preparation fees.
    So far, MyFreeTaxes has helped 1.2 million people save $250 million in tax filing fees and brought more than
    $1.7 billion back in returns.

    The software links you to a secure H&R Block website. It walks you through the filing process and screens for
    common tax deductions and credits you may be eligible for, like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Child
    Tax Credit. That’s part of our effort to make sure you get back every penny possible. There is 24/7 chat help,
    and a helpline with *real people* (IRS-certified experts) who are available every day, 10 am-10 pm EST at 1-866-
    698-9435.

    Other simple tax situations covered in MyFreeTaxes include: W-2 income; limited interest and dividend income
    reported on a 1099-INT or 1099-DIV; student education expenses, credits or student loan interest;
    unemployment income; claiming the standard deduction; EITC; child tax credits; child and dependent care
    expenses.

    Unfortunately, MyFreeTaxes no longer provides a free return to filers who are self-employed. Self-employed
    filers will need to report all of their income and expenses on a Schedule C form, which is not included in the
    MyFreeTaxes software. If you are self-employed, and wish to use MyFreeTaxes to file your taxes, you will only
    be charged $24.99 for a federal return and $18.50 for each state return (a 50% discount).
    In any case, MyFreeTaxes is fast. It’s easy. You can do it from anywhere: your phone, tablet or laptop. You can
    start on one device, and finish on another. You can upload your W-2 form, letting MyFreeTaxes fill in all the
    details.
