Free tax prep and e-file at Edmonds Community College
Every year, Edmonds Community College offers free income tax return preparation and e-filing to U.S. citizens and residents. This service is sponsored by an IRS program called Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA).
Confidential tax return preparation will be offered on a drop-in basis Feb. 5-March 15 and again April 2-12 in Mountlake Terrace Hall 212. No tax preparation will be done during spring break, March 16-April 2. Assistance in several languages will be available.
Volunteers are taught using IRS training guidelines and are IRS certified to provide confidential tax preparation to qualified taxpayers. Last year, Edmonds Community College helped more than 500 campus and community members file their tax returns.
