Chime® Offering Free and Easy In-App Tax Filing

Just in time for tax season, Chime is offering its in-app tax filing pilot program for free¹ to even more members.  After early success with the pilot launch, the all-new tax feature is now available to millions more Chime members, showing members are eager for a seamless tax filing option that is truly free.

“Many companies make it feel like their tax filing product is free, but everyday people end up facing a ton of hidden fees — we heard from our members that many of them were even paying $70 or more to file their taxes. At Chime, we believe that everyone should have access to the very best financial services. Offering a free and convenient way for our members to file their taxes is just one of the many ways to have our members’ backs. So far, the reception has been really positive. We’re proud to help our members get their taxes done faster and get their refunds back sooner.”
– Madhu Muthukumar, Chief Product Officer


Directly through the Chime app – which boasts more than 1M 5-star reviews² – members can file both state and federal taxes completely free with a maximum refund guaranteed. Eligible members will receive an in-app notification to let them know they’re eligible to use the tax filing experience as a part of the pilot.
