Many good things are happening this month in the US, abroad,  and on the blog as we continue celebrating Women’s History Month. If you caught the  95th Oscars on Sunday night, you probably noticed women supporting women throughout the ceremony and I was thrilled to see the subtle shift. Women supporting women is top of mind today as I share a woman-owned business that offers free tax filing and tax credit help for Moms and families. 

Free Tax Help! 

Free tax filing help for 2022

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Let’s Get Set. I received information to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions and love of supporting women-led businesses are my own. 

About Let’s Get Set:

Let's Get Set logo

Let’s Get Set, based in San Francisco California, is a female-founded Fintech startup that’s making paths to upward mobility possible for the 90 million Americans who make less than $70 thousand dollars per year. CEO and founder Claire Herceg states their goal is “ to help families claim what’s owed to them and use it to reach their financial goals. We’re excited to partner with Column Tax to help families get one step closer to achieving financial independence.”

Their first product helps parents secure their maximum tax credits and their piece of the $12B that is left unclaimed each year. How is it even possible that we as tax-paying citizens are missing out on 12 billion in tax credits each year? Sadly, I think it stems from continued tax law changes and the fact that we don’t know what we don’t know. Let’s Get Set is here to help level the playing field when it comes to our taxes.

How Let’s Get Set reaches those in Need:

According to their website, they reach parents through partnerships with national organizations and healthcare providers who work one-on-one with parents. Their work was studied by the Urban Institute and showed that families are more likely to get this refund money when referred to Let's Get Set. I'm proud to add my name as a partner to help share their mission and hopefully, reach more people who may need their services.

Since Let’s Get Set was specifically designed to help families making under $70,000 in annual income, the company offers a family-focused and supported tax filing service (which is powered by Column Tax) for busy Moms and families. 

Tax Filing and Credit Help:

The platform offers tax filing in two ways: a flat fee of $60 to file on the platform or free tax filing through one of several partners in its network. Here’s a break- down of how their filing system works and what you can expect when you visit their website.

  • When signing up for an account, families are guided to gather everything needed to prepare their tax filing in one platform.
  • The platform’s smart tools help parents learn what forms they need to file and which parent-specific credits they may qualify for. 
  • Let’s Get Set assesses the filer’s needs, and suggests a filing option that works best for them.
  • Filers can then choose to proceed with Let’s Get Set. There is no fee until they confirm they want to file.
  • Throughout their tax filing journey, parents are supported via automated text reminders and nudges, and by a direct line to ask questions.

read and take notes

I know that filing your taxes can be stressful, especially if you are a small business owner like my husband and me.  It’s human nature to put off unpleasant tasks, but putting this important project off will only cause more stress as the filing cut-off date of April 18th gets closer.

If you need help starting, grab a pen, your planner, or a blank piece of paper for taking notes, and read all the helpful guides to help you get started located on the Let’s Get Set blog. I found several helpful articles like Everything you need to know about the 2022 Child Tax Credit.  

Free Financial Tools:

If possible, allow ample time to read not only the Let’s Get Set blog but the main site as well where you’ll discover the free financial tools to help families make better financial decisions. This includes a refund estimator and bank match tool to help families choose a bank account that works for their needs. If you're short on time, head over to their Tik Tok account where they share quick tax and finance tips. While you’re there, give me a follow too! 

Helping Women is my passion and goal!

I hope this post helps elevate some of the stress that’s inherent during tax season! Helping women, especially Moms, and families with tips and ideas for a happy home life is a passion and goal here on My WAHM Plan blog, so if you haven’t yet, I’d love it if you’d take a moment to subscribe to my newsletter. Thank you.
