Brief Program Description: Through this program, income tax returns are prepared and electronically filed for lower income households by trained volunteers free of charge. This enables more families to benefit from earned income tax credits and child tax credits. This program is administered by personnel who also provide financial literacy information to our clients.

Documentation Needed: Social security cards, photo identification, dates of birth, proof of taxable income such as W-2 forms, and relevant expense records must be provided at the time that the returns are prepared.

Application Process: Intake forms provided by the IRS are completed prior to the tax returns being prepared.

Criteria For Selection: Same as eligibility.

Seasonal Operation: The program operates from mid-January through mid-April.
