MyFreeTaxes is a free online tax preparation and filing tool. There is no income limit to file your own taxes. Taxes can be prepared for those who earned less than $60,000 in 2022. Using this online service, you can file your federal and state tax returns at no cost to you. This is a great option for single filers, college students, part-time workers, and anyone else with simple taxes that needs assistance with filing and whose adjusted gross income is less than $60,000 annually. (Your adjusted gross income is your total income from taxable sources, including salary and other employment income, interest and dividends, and long- and short-term capital gains and losses, minus unreimbursed business and medical expenses, contributions to a deductible individual retirement account (IRA), and alimony.)
While this service offers a free federal and state return, the number of forms included is limited. Throughout the self-serve filing process you will be presented with opportunities to purchase additional services. There is no obligation to use these services or pay for any in order to file with MyFreeTaxes. Here is a list of the forms that are included and excluded from the free service. Access this tool now.
Tax Counseling for Military Personnel

They are trained and equipped to address military-specific tax issues.
Additionally, MilTax Software is free to miliary families and provides access to tax professionals and e-filing.
