TAX ASSISTANCE

United Way volunteer assisting woman with taxesUnited Way of Pierce County, in partnership with Associated Ministries is committed to moving families to financial stability. We want families to keep the money they have worked so hard for and make the most of their tax return. There are two ways to get help with taxes.

MYFREETAXES.COM

One of the ways we are helping families do this is by connecting them to free tax preparation and tax credits that are available to eligible families.  For households making less than $66,000 a year, they can access MyFreeTaxes.com to file their taxes for free. The site provides easy, fast, secure federal and state tax filing online through software partner, H&R Block.

LOCAL TAX ASSISTANCE

South Sound 2-1-1 is also partnering with Pierce County Asset Building Coalition to provide tax help for low-income families. For households making less than $54,000, they can get free tax assistance and file for free at one of 20 sites throughout Pierce County from late January through April. Volunteers will prepare client taxes free of charge, determine if they qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and find other credits to boost their bottom line. To find a site near you, dial 2-1-1.
