Local group offers free tax preparation

Volunteers are offering free preparation of tax returns for qualifying QC-area households. 

You qualify if your household earns $57,000 or less per year.

Trained volunteers prepare and electronically file tax returns at no cost, making sure filers receive all tax credits for which they are eligible including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC).

The volunteers can also answer questions about building a savings, and many locations will offer the opportunity to open a savings account and have your tax return deposited directly into that account.

Free tax preparation is offered at a variety of locations in and around the Quad Cities through April.  For a list of available locations and times, click here.

To find out if you qualify for free tax preparation, call 2-1-1 or (563)-355-9900.
