season is underway and United Way of King County is providing free tax preparation
services to the community through their Free Tax Preparation Campaign.
They have already helped many community members file
their taxes for free and connect to poverty alleviating resources. However, there are still many people in our community that need to
file and they are offering free tax preparation services to the community
online and at their 32 locations throughout King County until April 18.
This service helps community members avoid tax prep fees and
secures all the tax credits that are eligible to them. Households making under
$66,000 can have their taxes prepared plus they can get connected to other
community resources and public benefits.
There are two
easy ways to file your taxes for free with us:
If you don’t need in-person help, file your taxes online for free
with United Way’s My Free Taxes tool at MyFreeTaxes.com
. This is a user-friendly site
that taxpayers can use to file for free while still ensuring they take
advantage of all refunds and credits they are eligible for.
File your taxes in-person at one of 32
locations throughout King County. All locations have convenient
hours to meet your schedule, and no appointments are needed. Historically, our sites
slow down during March and this is the perfect time for anyone still needing to
file taxes to come in. Wait times will be shorter during this month. To find a location near
you, languages available, a list of what to bring and other details, visit
United Way’s website at FreeTaxExperts.org
or call 2-1-1.
