Do you make under $64,000 a year? Are you an individual with a low to mid-level income who needs help in preparing for tax season?
According to Kevin Voigt, news writer for NerdWallet, “more than 1 in 3 U.S. taxpayers whose household income is less than $50,000 a year hired a tax professional or a national tax preparation company last year even though they may have qualified for free tax software filing.”
But you don’t necessarily need to pay for a tax professional. Read more below for resources to help you this tax season.
