Tax Preparation

UWHC encourages residents to economize on tax preparation with MyFreeTaxes

As the tax season begins, the United Way of Henderson County (UWHC) encourages residents to use MyFreeTaxes to make their federal and state returns easy and accurate. MyFreeTaxes is free for all simple returns.

With MyFreeTaxes, anyone can access the free tax return options they are eligible for. Simple tax situations covered for free in MyFreeTaxes include: W-2 Income, Schedule C Self Employment, Unemployment Income, Standard Deduction Eligibility, Education Costs, Credits or Student Loan Interest, Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credits, and Child and Dependent Care Costs.

“MyFreeTaxes can also connect users to products that can help build financial stability, including accessible and affordable bank accounts, student debt assistance, and the ability to connect NC 211 to a financial advisory program,” noted Denise Cumbee Long, executive Director of UWHC. “MyFreeTaxes can also help filers claim missed stimulus payments, which can have a real impact this year,” she added.

Taxes can easily be submitted using a mobile phone, tablet or computer. The platform guides the user through the process to ensure the maximum refund. Filers who prefer more support can connect to virtual VITA programs to have their returns prepared for them by an IRS-certified specialist.

Most filers get their taxes done in under an hour and save an average of $ 200 in fees by using MyFreeTaxes instead of a paid tax advisor. Please visit for more information.
