Free Tax Preparation Assistance From the City

Last year, the City's free income tax assistance helped nearly 21,000 Chicago families and individuals receive over $34 million in tax refunds and credits. This additional income not only has a direct impact on the lives of Chicago residents - it helps sustain our small businesses, strengthens our neighborhoods and infuses millions of dollars into our local economy. Eligible Chicagoans could receive up to $6,866 from the federal and state Earned Income Tax Credits alone, in addition to other credits. But many may not claim all the income tax credits they deserve without the help of knowledgeable preparers.

For more information about how to access the free tax assistance program, Chicagoans can: Call the City's 311 helpline, visit the City's tax assistance website at taxprepchicago.org, visit the Center for Economic Progress website at economicprogress.org or call 312-252-0280, visit the Ladder Up website at goladderup.org or call 312-409-4719
Visit the IRS website at irs.gov and type "free tax help" in the search box or call 800-829-1040
