Tax season is here. If your income is $60,000 or less you may be eligible to have your taxes completed for free. Or, you can complete your tax return yourself for free using a computer and online forms.
For a complete listing of all free VITA tax sites or to access a free online program to complete your taxes yourself, please visit the Money Smart KCT.
If you receive a tax refund, consider using it to purchase a refurbished computer for yourself or your children in school. . A goal of Money Smart KC in collaboration with the Kansas City Coalition for Digital Inclusion is for all families to have a computer and be connected. Some Kansas City, Kansas organizations, like Connecting for Good and Electro Mundo Computers, offer desk top and lap top computers for $50 – $100 preloaded with software.
