Are you ready to make some real money moves?

You may qualify to file your taxes for free. The IRS offers two options for free filing.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program


With VITA, you can schedule to have your taxes filed by a trained VITA tax preparer. Locations are usually in community centers and local nonprofits, like The United Way.


To qualify for VITA, you must meet one of the following qualifications:


- Have an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $66,000 or less

- Live with a disability

- Be over 60 years old

- Speak limited English


To locate a VITA site near you, visit https://irs.treasury.gov/freetaxprep/ or call (800) 906-9887.


DIY Free Filing Software


The IRS allows you to choose from 12 free tax filing programs, including H&R Block and TurboTax. To qualify, you must have an Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $66,000 or less.


For most programs, if you meet the free federal filing requirements, you are also eligible to file your state tax return for free.
