United Way announced enhanced features to MyFreeTaxes that allow most filers to complete their taxes in under one hour.

MyFreeTaxes.com is a safe, easy and completely free way for individuals or families earning $66,000 or less to file their state and federal taxes.

For the past nine years, United Way has partnered with H&R Block to provide free tax filing services for federal and state taxes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Since that time, the partnership has helped nearly a million people file their returns, bringing more than $1 billion in refunds back to local communities.

MyFreeTaxes users get access to H&R Block Premium Product with enhanced features like:
·        Ability to upload image of your W-2, allowing MyFreeTaxes to automatically fill in your information;
·        Free, unlimited, personalized real-time chat and phone support in English and Spanish from IRS-certified specialists at 1-855-MY-TX-HELP. The helpline operates from mid-January [MM1] through April 30, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, and between noon and 9:00 p.m. EST on Saturdays;
·        Refund RevealTM will show filers how and why their refund amount is changing in real time; and
·        Advanced functionality for those working in the gig economy or need to include information regarding real estate investments, stock options or inheritance taxes.

Taxpayers earning less than $66,000 can enter their data through MyFreeTaxes.com, which links to a secure H&R Block website, making it easy to complete their taxes from home, at work or on mobile devices.

MyFreeTaxes is supported by United Way, and users can contact their local United Way for other local resources, or find ways to volunteer and further support their community. MyFreeTaxes comes with the same brand promise as all H&R Block’s products: that consumers are guaranteed a maximum refund, 100 percent accuracy and 100 percent satisfaction.
