Free Tax Preparation Available through United Way
March 29, 2013
The United Way Free Tax Preparation Campaign runs through April 15 and helps lower-income individuals and families secure all the refunds and credits that they’re eligible for, including the Earned Income Tax Credit, according to a press release from the city of Snoqualmie.
The service is for households that earn less than $51,000 per year, with tax returns that do not involve business taxes, rental income, or sale of property or stocks. The program is especially helpful for people who aren’t sure which deductions they qualify for, whose first language isn’t English, or who have trouble because of a disability or other challenge.
The service is free with no hidden costs or fees.
IRS-certified and multilingual volunteers are ready to help at several sites. People also can sign up for public benefits such as children’s health care, food stamps, and utility assistance; get help with the application for college financial aid; and pull credit reports, among many other services.
Location days and times vary. Please visit www.uwkc.org/taxhelp for locations, language translation services, and required documentation for filing. All sites have limited capacity.
