Facilitated Self Assistance (FSA) program
During the tax filing season, if you meet the income level, you can visit one of our FSA sites to prepare and electronically file your federal and state returns with assistance from Tax Department employees—for free! We have completed all FSA sessions for filing 2018 returns. Look for information on filing 2019 returns in late January 2020.
At our FSA sites and lab settings, we’ll guide you through free tax preparation software as you prepare and e-file your federal and state income tax returns.
Not interested but still want free tax preparation software?
Using your own computer, tablet, or mobile device, you can prepare and e-file your income tax returns whenever and wherever you want using the same free tax preparation software we use at our FSA sites.
