Welcome to the Louisville Asset Building Coalition’s Free File free tax service!

If you meet their eligibility requirements, either of the following products will help you e-file your federal and state returns at no cost to you. They are both user-friendly and very effective at helping you secure the best refund for you and your family. If you can shop online, and have a basic return we encourage you to try one of these options before coming to one of our VITA sites. It easy, effective and will save you time.

Here’s all the information you need to decide whether Free File is right for you… and which product best meets your needs.

Before you get started, be sure you have a current email address so the tax software companies can notify you whether your tax return has been e-filed and accepted by both the IRS and any state(s) in which you may file. 

If you have $36,000 or less in income, or are eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit or are active duty military with a military W-2 and less than $69,000 of income you should consider using Intuit’s Free File Program Delivered by Turbo Tax. Intuit provides you with a safe, secure tax preparation software package that is both free and easy to use.

They have a well-designed interview process that guides you through the process of making decisions about your filing status, inputting your income and making decisions about deductions and tax credits for which you may qualify. Intuit has also developed a wonderful screenshot guide for anyone interested in preparing their own return, but unsure about how to begin. You can also learn more about the program by watching the video below and the other free file videos on our Youtube page. 


Developed by TaxSlayer and United Way Worldwide, My Free Taxes is safe, secure and free. It also uses an interview process to guide you through the income tax filing process. This year, there are no income or form limitations to use the MyFreeTaxes program! TaxSlayer also has a screenshot guide available to help navigate the program. 

Whichever product you select, you should know that you can e-file your return with every assurance that your information is safe and not accessible to anyone else, including us! If you have any questions as you are using either software, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
