My Free Taxes

You have probably heard the saying "Nothing in life is free." Well, thanks to United Way and the UTRGV Financial Aid Office that is not true when it comes to filing your taxes. United Way joined with industry leader H&R Block to help you easily and accurately file your taxes through MyFreeTaxes. You can file online at or visit us on campus so that a VITA- certified United Way tax consultant will show you, in person, how to file your taxes online, step-by-step, for FREE from  January 29th to March 2nd at:

Please bring:

  • Valid identification such as driver’s license
  • Social Security or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) and a valid e-mail address
  • W2s, 1099s, and other income forms
  • 1098-T forms (can be printed from your ASSIST account)
  • Your 2016 tax return (if you filed one) or your parent’s 2016 tax return if you were claimed as a dependent.
