Free Tax Preparation

United Way of Snohomish County's Free Tax Preparation Campaign

In its 12th year, United Way of Snohomish County offered Free Tax Preparation Services to families and individuals who earned less than $66,000. In partnership with the IRS as part of their Volunteer Tax Assistance Program (VITA), United Way’s Free Tax Prep is designed to ensure that residents receive all the tax credits and deductions for which they are eligible.
