Free income tax preparation available at Highline College

DES MOINES, Wash. — Community members can get their taxes done for free, thanks to a partnership between United Way of King County and Highline College. Households that make less than $62,000 are eligible, as long as tax returns do not involve business taxes, rental income, or sale of property or stocks.

This community service is available from January 13 through April 21 on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Highline College Outreach Center (located at 23835 Pacific Highway S., Kent, Wash.), Building 99, room 251.

Participants will need to bring the following:
— Social Security cards/individual tax identification numbers (ITINs) and birthdates for everyone named on the return.
— Photo ID.
— All tax statements, such as W-2 forms, 1099 forms and SSA-1099 forms.

Bringing bank account numbers, routing numbers and a copy of last year’s tax return is also highly recommended. For a participant jointly filing with a spouse, both must be present to e-file.

No appointment is necessary. Those who arrive first will be served first. Services are provided by IRS-certified volunteers.

In addition to tax preparation, community members can sign up for health care and public benefits and access free credit reports.

For questions or more information, visit uwkc.org/taxhelp or call 800-621-4636.
