MEMBERS-ONLY BENEFIT

Free Tax Filing

Teamsters can now prepare and file their federal and state income taxes for free.  It’s a members-only benefit for Teamsters with a household income of $73,000 or less.

Our Teamsters Service Bureau is offering this valuable benefit to income-eligible members of Joint Council 32.  It’s an easy way to save money.  You no longer need to purchase tax software, pay to electronically file, or use a for-profit tax preparation business.

Teamsters have free access to TaxSlayer.  The do-it-yourself tax preparation software includes federal and state tax returns with schedules.  It is fast, easy, and accurate with built-in assistance to answer your questions. It is cloud-based so there is no software to download.  You can access it from your smartphone, tablet, or desktop.

 

When you are done filling out your tax forms, TaxSlayer will electronically file your federal and state returns with no filing charges.  You will be notified when the IRS and state revenue offices have received and accepted your returns.

 

If you need assistance with your tax returns, you can get expert help from IRS-certified volunteers at Prepare + Prosper. This nonprofit has been providing financial assistance and tax preparation for 50 years and is our trusted partner.

 

To take advantage of this benefit, go to https://prepareandprosper.org/do-it-yourself-tax-prep/.   

Once you’re on the website select “Sign Up for Our Webinar” or “Send Me the DIY Tax Prep Resources” to get started on your taxes.  The deadline to file your taxes is April 18, 2022.

 

This benefit is part of an initiative to expand free tax filing. Thanks to the IRS Stakeholder Partnerships, Education & Communication (SPEC) program, St. Paul Territory office.
