April 15 – Tax Deadline

Each year the majority of people in the United States have to file taxes at some point. Similar to the quote in an extremely popular song by Daniel Caesar, two things are constant in life and they are death and taxes. Depending on the complexity of your situation, you might need to file different tax forms. Tax forms for self-employed individuals and rental income have typically cost money to file but with Credit Karma Tax they are 100% free to file! It is easy to get started with Credit Karma Tax. They offer a dedicated support team to help with tax product questions. There is a feature that allows you to upload a picture of your W2 and the tax form will be automatically populated with that information. You have the ability to also import the previous year’s return from H&R Block, Turbo Tax, and TaxAct into Credit Karma Tax to get a head start.
Apart from tax filing, Credit Karma also offers other features to go along with an account with them. You can check your credit scores for free as well as simulate the impact of taking on a new credit card or defaulting on a loan on your credit score. This can be very powerful as it can help you gauge if you should or should not open a new credit card if you are planning to apply for a mortgage in the near future. Credit Karma also has cool features that helps you track unclaimed money, compare credit cards and loans, as well as other numerous financial resources.
Below is a video from Credit Karma with some more insight into the products they offer. It should be noted that I am not compensated by Credit Karma by any means. I am simply just sharing my favorite free tax filing website so that you can file for free as well. Happy filing!
In addition to tracking your credit score, any unclaimed money, and filing your taxes for free with Credit Karma, you can also stay up-to-date on your finances by signing up with Personal Capital. It is a free website with sophisticated financial tools to help manage your wealth.
