Aloha Self-Preparers!

MyFreeTaxes.com allows anyone who earned less than $66,000 in 2018 to prepare and electronically file their federal AND state tax returns for free. This software is perfect for:

  • Anyone who has an uncomplicated return (single or married, regular jobs, fully covered by health insurance during the entire tax year);
  • Those who have been using other self-preparation software which has been charging them a fee for the preparation and filing of state returns;
  • Those who might have returns that VITA sites are not permitted to do;
  • Those who are homebound.

MyFreeTaxes is a completely FREE service provided by United Way Worldwide and H&R Block – The Hawaii VITA Program helps to promote this service as an option for taxpayers who want to save money on tax preparation.  However, we do not operate the site.  

General instructions:  Click this link:  MyFreeTaxes.com .  Then click on button that says “Login to your H&R Block Account” even if you don’t have an account.  You will then see a page that looks like this:

IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THE MESSAGE ON THIS PAGE and then click on the Login button again.  If you do not have an H&R Block account, you will need to create one at this point. 

PLEASE NOTE: Do not prepare your returns unless you have ALL of your income related documents – all W-2’s from jobs, all interest statements from banks, and so forth. If you prepare your return without all of your information (for example, you’re missing a W-2 Form), you will be required to amend your return.  Amending a return is challenging and you may not be able to prepare the amendment, particularly the State amendment, on MyFreeTaxes.

Our VITA Program will NOT prepare amended returns unless the original return was prepared by one of our sites.
