Trained, IRS-certified volunteers prepare income taxes at no charge to families and individuals throughout Greater Lorain County with professionalism and confidentiality. Individuals, families and the elderly save valuable money in tax preparation fees by having volunteers file their taxes for them. 

In general, individuals and families with a household income of about $60,000 or less are eligible. Some coalition partners can accommodate other financial situations.
