Tax season is quickly approaching and United Way of Central Florida is making it easier than ever to get the refund you deserve and plan for the future.
UWCF has a team of IRS-certified volunteers to prepare taxes for those with a household income of $66,000 or less at no cost to clients. In 2017, more than 800 walk-in customers claimed $1.2 million in returns and saved a collective $160,000 in fees.
The free service can be accessed in two ways, including online by visiting MyFreeTaxes.com to file your taxes yourself. If you prefer to have your taxes filed by one of our experts, you can search for tax prep sites near you by visiting uwcf.org/money. Select January appointments are available now. Keep checking the calendar as more dates will be added soon.
But UWCF doesn’t just want to help you get your refund. Building a savings account to help with emergencies that arise is key to becoming financially stable. Our tax experts can help you split your refund to put some cash into savings.
Anyone who registers at SaveYourRefund.com then files with MyFreeTaxes.com or visits one of our tax sites and uses Form 8888 will be entered to win one of 30 $100 prizes.
If you or someone you know has a household income of up to $66,000, please remember UWCF services are free and easy to use.
