Free tax prep and e-file at Edmonds College


Tax prep  

Every year, Edmonds 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. 6-March 20 and again April 8-11 in Mountlake Terrace Hall 212. No tax preparation will be done during spring break, March 21-April 7. 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 College helped more than 500 campus and community members file their tax returns.

For more information, call 425.640.1874 or visit www.edmonds.edu/vita.

  • a copy of last year's tax return (if available)
