New Touch-Free Taxes Program
Touch-Free Taxes Program
United Way of the Capital Region is pleased to announce a new tax preparation program for people who made $66,000 or less last year. Touch-Free Taxes can be done from the comfort of your home and connects you to a trained volunteer to complete your taxes at no cost.
Simply go to our secure site and answer a few questions. You will need to upload photos of the same tax information and forms as you would for any tax service. This can be done by scanning them or taking a photo with your smart phone. You will set up a time for a telephone interview with a certified volunteer tax preparer to review your forms. A local volunteer preparer will complete your state and local returns. Once that step is complete, you will have a second phone call to review the results before the forms are sent to you electronically to sign. Our United Way will electronically file your federal and state returns. Your local return will be sent to you to mail to your local tax office. Get started today!
