$tand By Me® announced the launch of 2016 MyFreeTaxes, a user-friendly, web-based tax software that is available free of charge to taxpayers with a household income at or below $62,000 (some fees may apply if your income exceeds that amount).
This is the only FREE self-service software that allows taxpayers to file both state and federal taxes, even when multiple states are involved (for instance, when you live in one state and work in another).
In addition to being able to access this important service from the comfort of home, taxpayers also have access to a toll-free hotline to answer any questions they might have about taxes or the software.
This top-quality self-service tax program is an H&R Block product that is being offered across the country as MyFreeTaxes. The program is funded by the Walmart Foundation, which in turn funds several major national nonprofits, including United Way Worldwide, Goodwill International and the National Disability Institute. Through a grant to United Way of Delaware, $tand By Me® is able to offer this COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE
