Free Tax Preparation


 

Tax Sites are Now Closed for the Season

You can still file for free online at www.myfreetaxes.com.
 

Snohomish County Walk-In Hours and Locations

Sites are first-come, first-served, and they get crowded—especially during January and April. Arrive as close to opening time as possible for the best chance of receiving service.

Visit United Way of King County's website for information on walk-in sites in King County.
 

Want to check the status of your refund?

Once your return has been filed, you can check your refund status with the IRS' Where's My Refund tool.
 

Need a copy of a previous year’s return?

United Way of Snohomish County does not keep copies of tax returns prepared at our sites after the filing deadline, but you can obtain a copy from the IRS.
