The bigger picture.

Online tax filing is just part of our story. We believe in doing more with what we have.

How our Giveback Matching
Campaign works.

You file your tax return with 1040.com—then sit back and watch.
We count up the total number of returns filed—even free ones—at the end of tax season.
We match each return with a special donation to help provide clean water around the world.

The impact

+11 million gallons of clean water given—so far.

That’s a year’s supply for over 59,000 people! That’s a great statistic, but it’s still not enough. We hope to double that number by 2021, and when you file with us, we consider you a partner in the fight to end the global water crisis in our lifetime.
