Edmonds College is offering free income tax return preparation and e-filing to U.S. citizens and residents by appointment. This service is sponsored by an IRS program called, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). 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.
