3 Ways to File Your Tax Returns

File online with a virtual tax preparer

We’ve teamed with GetYourRefund.org to help you file your taxes online with the help of certified VITA volunteers.

Starting on January 31 at 1:00 p.m., you can access Get Your Refund, an encrypted, secure platform. After you click Get Started select File taxes with help. With this option, you’ll answer the same questions as you would at a VITA site. Be prepared to use your phone to take photos of your tax documents. An IRS-certified VITA volunteer will call you for an interview and quality review. The GetYourRefund website is available in Spanish and an additional 120 languages.

File yourself using free tax software

Use the free software at MyFreeTaxes.com to file your tax returns. File for free on your own using United Way’s MyFreeTaxes program. You will need your AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) found on your 2022 tax return to get started. Or, get a transcript at irs.gov/transcript

File in-person at a VITA site

The VITA program is limited to households with an income less than $70,000. Use this map to find a tax site in Middle Tennessee. Visit our Tax Sites page for hours, locations and to book an appointment. Call 211 to find locations outside of Middle Tennessee.
