Do-it-yourself free tax help online. Several sponsors have partnered to offer My Free Taxes, which you can access at A free helpline for this service only is available at 855-698-9435 from 9am-10pm (EST) Monday-Saturday. You are eligible for this service only if you are a US citizen or permanent resident, because the software provided does not prepare nonresident returns.

Help for students and scholars at UK is available through Sprintax which you will have access to through the UK International Center. You should use Sprintax to do your federal return, if possible, before coming to the College of Law site. We will be glad to review the federal return, make any corrections, and help you with the state return(s) you need.

The Kentucky Revenue Department offers online free-file services which will complete certain federal and state returns for free. You can find all the options here; select Online Taxes or Tax Act for help with nonresident returns.
