Free Tax Help

From: Northwest News Bits

Are you ready for the tax season?  Tax-Aide, the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service will again provide free tax preparation and electronic filing at 12 North Seattle and Shoreline sites starting February 1st.  This service is totally free; you do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service. There is no age restrictions.  If you would like someone to help you prepare and file your 2015 federal income tax return, or maybe simply have a few questions before you tackle your own, Tax-Aide’s IRS tax-certified volunteer preparers at each site can help.  In addition to regular earned and retirement income reporting, we can help you with your investment income (interests, dividends, and capital gains for Schedule D), Schedule C for individuals with small businesses that have less than $25,000 in annual expenses, and various healthcare (Affordable Care Act), education, child and earned income credits. If you are a foreign student, come to our sites at the Northgate Library and Northeast Library.  We have preparers who can help you with your 1040NR-EZ and Form 8843.  If you have a more complicated return, we might not be able to prepare your return, but we can at least point you in the right direction.

All of our sites will be using electronic filing, which helps expedite tax refunds.  AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offered in conjunction with the IRS.  In addition to your tax documents, remember to bring picture ID, together with your social security cards if you want us to prepare your tax return.
