Mohawk Valley Community College is offering free federal and state tax preparation and filing assistance through the website MYFREE Taxes. The URL is http://myfreetaxes.com/MVCommunityCollege.
The free service is open to individuals and families who earned $58,000 or less in 2013. It is provided through a partnership between MVCC and the Mohawk Valley Asset Building Coalition.
The MyFree Taxes partnership works with filers to maximize their refunds and help eligible families and individuals claim valuable tax credits to help keep more money in their pockets. MyFreeTaxes.com is an easy, fast and secure federal and state tax filing site powered by H&R Block ®. The online tool allows eligible taxpayers to self-file for free using a simple step-by-step process that includes telephone and online chat support.
Those individuals interested in filing in person can visit the MVCC Educational Opportunity Center at 524 Elizabeth Street, Utica, where a certified tax professional will help with the preparation. Appointments are recommended, and can be made by calling 315 731-5870.
