Feb. 07, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Goodwill Industries of KYOWVA and the Financial Stability Partnership of the River Cities have partnered to bring the MyFreeTaxes program to the Tri-State.

Those interested in doing their own taxes are encouraged to visit www.myfreetaxes.com/huntington.

United Way Worldwide, Goodwill Industries and the National Institute for Disabilities are offering MyFreeTaxes to those who are just outside of the VITA guidelines. Individuals with an income of $57,000 and less can have free access to H&R Block's tax-filing software for both state and federal returns, thanks to a grant from the Walmart Foundation.

The following MyFreeTaxes sites have been set up for the upcoming tax season: Christ Temple Church in Huntington noon to 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7; HIMG in Huntington 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8; Goodwill in Williamson, W.Va. 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12; Goodwill in Pikeville, Ky. 1:30 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12; and Chase Bank, 1000 5th Ave. in Huntington noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13.
