You’ve probably been receiving tax documents, from your employer and elsewhere recently, a reminder of the fact that tax season is just around the corner. I don’t think anyone would ever say that filing your federal taxes is easy, but free help is available from the United Way.
We received the following email from Abbie Watton, part of United Way of King County’s Free Tax Prep Campaign:
Did you know that 70% of Americans qualify for free tax prep services by IRS-certified volunteers?
This tax season, United Way of King County’s free tax preparation services are a convenient resource available to you, your family members, and your community! Tax time can be stressful and expensive, but it doesn’t need to be.
