Free Tax Prep

Tax Prep Made Easy
The 2019 tax-filing season is here, and Los Angeles is excited to launch Free Tax Prep LA at FamilySource Centers and other locations across the city.

The idea is simple: every Angeleno deserves the chance to access any tax credits available to working families, even if you can’t afford to hire an accountant. So we have experts and volunteers ready to offer free tax help to individuals and households who make less than $54,884 a year and qualify for the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit. Your family may be able to receive up to $9,310 cash back in combined state and federal tax credits — but only if you file before tax day on April 15.

Visit your local FamilySource Center to make an appointment for Free Tax Prep LA services. There are 16 locations throughout the city. Please contact us and schedule your prep session today.

 


Free Tax Prep LA Pop-Ups at L.A.’s Public Schools!
This year, Mayor Garcetti and the Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) worked with the Family Source Centers and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to bring Free Tax Prep LA Pop-Up services to select schools to serve district families and employees.
