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 our city’s 2014 tax season, over 40 well-trained tax preparers filed Federal tax returns for over 5,500 residents at no charge to the taxpayer. With an average tax preparation fee running approximately $300, it is estimated this service saved Anchorage residents nearly $800,000 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 $58,000 in 2014 and have access to a computer, you can file your own taxes online for free at MyFreeTaxes.com.
