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, 50 volunteer tax preparers filed Federal tax returns for more than 3,800 Anchorage residents at no cost to the taxpayer. With an average tax preparation fee running approximately $200, this service saved Anchorage residents an estimated $760,000 dollars in tax prep fees and delivered $4.9 million in refunds back to Anchorage families and our local economy. The statewide numbers are even higher.
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.
