ROCHESTER – The start of tax filing season is upon us. To ensure that individuals and families can freely, easily, and securely prepare their Federal and State taxes, Goodwill of the Finger Lakes is once again offering online access to the My Free Taxes program.
By going online to http://www.myfreetaxes.com, households with Internet access that had a combined adjusted gross income (AGI) of $60,000 or less in 2014 can use the free service to prepare and file their Federal and State tax returns online.
“Goodwill of the Finger Lakes promotes family and financial strengthening. That is why we are excited to offer this online opportunity for a third year. Connecting individuals to a service that is free for both Federal and State tax filing not only saves on filing fees, but also empowers individuals to file independently and retain their entire refund,” said JoBeth Rath, workforce development manager.
While the number of free filing options available online is increasing, the service Goodwill is making available through MyFreeTaxes.com offers the highest threshold for free filing, in addition to offering free filing for both Federal and State returns.
“Often, Federal returns are the only returns that other online tax preparation tools offer for free,” said Rath.
