Let's face it, tax season in the United States is a pain in the you know what. However, in many other countries, this super fun process is taken care of by the government leaving an individual only a couple minutes of pain, if any at all. On the other hand, we spend HOURS preparing, checking boxes, and doing research. It's enough to make you SCREAM!
While I may not like the process, I understand why it is done this way. Everyone is different with different behaviors and goals, making a one size fits all tax process pretty much impossible. Thankfully, with United Way's free tax tool – MyFreeTaxes, filing taxes doesn't have to be a pain, it can be super easy and stressfree!
Maximize Your Refund
Everyone wants to maximize their tax return as much as possible. And, why not? Extra money is always good, but for most people, knowing what credits and deductions they deserve is a bit of a predicament.
It always leaves me with a headache. A BIG, MONSTROUS one. Our taxes are very complicated with different states and freelancer forms to deal with. It leaves my brain all jumbled and wondering if I am doing the right thing.
MyFreeTaxes takes away the mystery and streamlines the whole process with H&R Block’s premium software. The software hunts down everything you're entitled to so you get the money you deserve. No more wondering and what-ifs, you'll know everything is 100% accurate.
Plus handing money over to a tax preparer just doesn't make sense if you are trying to maximize your return. It is just money out the door that could stay in your pocket.
I have a huge bomb to drop. Keep reading, it'll be worth it!
Makes Filing Your Taxes SO Easy
And when I say easy, I mean it! Just upload a picture of your W-2 and in a matter of seconds, MyFreeTaxes will automatically start filling out the forms. How awesome is that?
No Robots Here
If you have any questions or need help in any way, a MyFreeTaxes IRS-certified specialist has your back. Just shoot them an email or chat, or pick up your phone and give them a call. You will reach a real person, in real time – not an annoying robot.
The Bomb Has Dropped
Are you wasting money filing your taxes? You don't have to this year!
Like the name suggests, MyFreeTaxes is FREE!
And not that fake kind of free where they only pay for federal or tack on fees for extra forms. With MyFreeTaxes, if you make less than $66,000 filing your state and federal income taxes are COMPLETELY free to file. No gimmicks, no hidden fees. Just plain ole free. This can save you up to $200 and keep more money in your pocket.
Happy tax season ahead! In case you didn't know, over 70 percent of U.S. taxpayers qualify for free tax filing and I am willing to bet a lot of them don't know about this amazing tool. So let all your friends and family know about MyFreeTaxes and save them some pain. Maybe they'll share some of their extra money with you too 😉
Haha you won’t believe that I spent a good part of this weekend trying to get stuff done to file taxes. It is certainly a stressful time of the year and I am going to keep your tips in mind.
It is super stressful to file taxes but thankfully MyFreeTaxes makes it way easier.
This is great advice. I have already completed my taxes because I like to get them done as soon as possible. One less thing to worry about.
We are like that too. The sooner the better. One year someone fraudulently filed under our name. It was a huge hassle, but those guys like to get in early before the real person files.

I have never attempted to do my own taxes. I have had the same CPA for 25 years. With her I’d be lost
Filing by yourself is very scary the first time but thankfully MyFreeTaxes has an easy to follow setup.
Filing taxes can be a pain. You offered some great tips.Filing taxes can be such a headache.This might help those that file themself.
Yes, I agree that MyFreeTaxes would be a HUGE help to those that file themselves!
We still need to file our taxes. I have been dreading it for awhile.
You still have over a month left. You will make it 🙂
Making it easier to do taxes is always a good thing. I usually let someone else do it for me which makes it easier except for the few times I have done it electronically on my own.
Haha, that probably is the easiest way (having someone else do it for you). I just hand all my tax docs to my husband which is pretty easy too LOL.
Krystle, my husband and I have always used TurboTax….but this sounds a whole lot better! I will certainly pass this info along to him! Seems like people in this country want to squeeze every last dime out of you that is for sure 😛
MyFreeTaxes is a great free tool if you qualify. I hope you and your husband can take advantage of it 🙂
I have yet to do my taxes. This was more like a reminder 😀 U.S. has one too many complicated steps.
So glad I reminded you to do your taxes. Don’t worry, you still have some time left 🙂
I think that doing the taxes is a nightmare in any country, not only in the UK. Especially when you are a self employed and don’t have the luxury of affording an accountant.
I, too, am one of the millions that hate the filing process. I’ll definitely give this a shot though because I’m always looking for ways to make things a little easier!
Taxes are scary! But this sounds like a great way to get them done without tears or pulling your hair out.
I’m already anxious about it, I still need to gather all the paperwork and get everything sorted and filed! We have tools similar to MyFreeTaxes in Canada too.
Now these are some great helping tips. It can be so daunting thinking about filing your taxes and returns.
What Corinne Did
Oh em gee, this is coming in with the best timing! I am both employed and self-employed and if I don’t have to fill anything regarding my full time job, I have taxes to pay as a freelancer and it is so complicated! This is going to help for sure! xx corinne
This is really great! I need to actually sit down and deal with taxes soon. I have everything in a spreadsheet, downloaded into month by month. Now it’s time to sift through it, I would love to try this easier way to deal with it 😉
Yeah, that’s how I have my blog taxes too. My CPA has fun with it LOL. I wish I could take advantage of MyFreeTaxes but my husband puts us over the threshold.
I need to still do my taxes. I am waiting on some 1090’s and then I will spend a day on taxes.
You still have some time! We just did ours last week 🙂
Easy tax filing? Oxymoron lol! However I’m glad I read this post because This does sound like a legitimate way to make the process less painful.
Haha, yeah it is an oxymoron, isn’t it? MyFreeTaxes makes the process way less stressful, though, which is always a plus in my book!
I know of people who have used that service, and have been very grateful for it. We have used the same CPA for years, and she keeps us sane!
MyFreeTaxes is a great service. I’m glad your friends have found it useful 🙂
I honestly don’t think I can deal with this stress but might as well learn it beforehand before jumping into the freelancing bandwagon.
Don’t worry, you can do it. Plus hopefully you take advantage of getting your taxes done for free. That’ll relieve a lot of stress!
