Have your taxes prepared and filed for FREE!
An ever-increasing number of Alaskans are using Anchorage’s free tax preparation services to get their taxes filed accurately and on time.
During the last tax season, dozens of well-trained tax preparers filed over 5,200 federal tax returns in Anchorage at no charge to the taxpayer. This saved an estimated $1 million dollars in tax prep fees and delivered $6 million in refunds back to Anchorage households and our local economy.
You, too, can save preparation and filing fees, improve the accuracy of your return, and ensure you receive the credits and benefits you qualify for—all for FREE.
Visit one of our certified tax preparers at scheduled FREE tax prep sites throughout the Anchorage area, or attend one of our Super Saturdays or other special events.
If you made less than $64,000 in 2016 and have access to a computer, you can also file your own taxes online for free at www.MyFreeTaxes.com. Computers and coaches are available at several tax sites and at most of this season’s special events. Call 2-1-1 for site-specific information.
Did you purchase health insurance or receive an exemption on the HealthCare.gov Marketplace? You must bring Form 1095-A or your exemption certificate number to your tax site. Also, know who in your household had health coverage and for which months in the calendar year.
Call for Volunteers!
Free tax services require the help of many volunteers each year.
