Tax Day. Many people dread its arrival annually with feelings of pressure and anxiety. But you don’t have to! For the last several years, an ever-increasing number of Alaskans have used Anchorage’s free tax preparation services to get their taxes filed accurately and on time.
During the last tax season, with the help of all the program partners, over 5,500 returns were filed, including 1,271 on behalf of Alaska’s military, at no charge to the taxpayer. This service saved Anchorage residents an estimated $797,000 dollars in tax prep fees and delivered $8.8 million in refunds back to Anchorage families and our local economy.
You, too, can save preparation and filing fees, improve the accuracy of your return, and ensure you receive the credits and benefits you qualify for—all for FREE.
If you made less than $60,000 in 2014 and have access to a computer, you can file your own taxes online for free at MyFreeTaxes.com.
New this year!
Did you purchase health insurance or receive an exemption on the HealthCare.gov Marketplace?
You must bring Form 1095-A or your exemption certificate number to your tax site. Also know who in your household had health coverage and for which months in 2014.
