[TOLEDO, Ohio] – As Tax Day (April 15) quickly approaches, thousands of residents across Lucas, Wood, and Ottawa County will pay hundreds of dollars to file their taxes, but United Way of Greater Toledo (UWGT) can help for free.

By visiting “MyFreeTaxes.com” anyone in our community can file a simple return at no cost, no matter your income. This program is made available via a partnership between United Way and H&R Block. Since 2009, 1.2 million Americans have successfully filed using MyFreeTaxes.

Additionally, individuals who earned less than $56,000 can file their taxes face-to-face with a certified Volunteer Income Tax Assistant. These appointments are possible due to a strong partnership between UWGT and LISC Toledo (Local Initiatives Support Corporation).

“Individuals who qualify for a free, in-person appointment can reserve a time by calling or texting 2-1-1,” said Jill Bunge, director of community impact at UWGT.

She continued, “Because of our partnership with LISC Toledo, we are able to schedule tax appointments with 2-1-1, while they set up filing sites, coordinate volunteers and handle logistics to actually help folks with their taxes.”
