OTHER FREE TAX HELP
You may also want to consider the free filing options below.

Myfreetaxes.com is sponsored by the United Way.  It uses an H&R Block program to prepare and file both federal and state taxes for free, if you quality.  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. Gross income limitation for this service is $66,000. 

Help for international 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.  Sprintax will prepare your state return(s) for a fee. 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.

The IRS also offers free-file services here, although eligibility is limited and many providers will charge extra for state returns. Read carefully before you sign up. Select Online Taxes and Tax Act will help with nonresident returns.
