Free Tax Help

Who’s Eligible

If your household income is $49,000 or less and you file an income tax return, you’re eligible for free tax preparation.

What To Bring

  • Photo identification
  • Social security cards for you, your spouse and dependents
  • Birth dates for tax payers and the dependents on the tax return
  • 2009 tax package if you received one
    All wage and earning statements – Form W-2, W2G, 1099-R for all employers
  • Interest and dividend statements from banks – Form 1099
  • A copy of last year’s federal tax return
  • Bank routing numbers and account numbers for direct deposit
  • Other relevant documentation (as applicable):

    • Total paid for child care and daycare provider’s identification number and contact information
    • Total paid for continuing education (tuition, books, supplies, etc.)
    • Sales tax paid on purchase of new vehicle
    • Information on purchase of new home (if first-time buyer)
    • Business-related expenses, such as mileage, office supplies, advertising (if small-business owner or independent contractor)
    • Adoption expenses
    • Any notices received from the IRS or state tax office
    • Property tax bills
    • Additional forms of income: prizes and awards, scholarships and fellowships, lottery/gambling winnings.
    • To file taxes electronically on a “married filing jointly” return, both spouses must be present to sign the required forms
