Want Your Taxes Done for Free?

The St. Louis Tax Assistance Program (TAP) offers free tax preparation services to low and moderate-income families to help them obtain the tax credits for which they are eligible and avoid costly income tax preparation fees.

Was your household income less than $62,000 in 2015?  If you said yes, you’re eligible to have your taxes done for FREE by trained volunteers at any of our seven sites.

If you would like to do your own return using Free software, just click HERE or on the My Free Taxes banner at the bottom of this page.

TAP is a participant in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) which is a service, in partnership with the IRS, designed to promote and support free tax preparation for low-to-moderate income individuals and families.  Free tax return preparation helps achieve VITA’s goal to build financial stability for everyone in our community by:

  • Saving moderate and lower-income individuals and families the cost of paying for tax preparation
  • Making sure that working families get the tax credits they deserve, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
  • Making sure that eligible seniors and disabled individuals get the Missouri Property Tax Credit (also known as the Circuit Breaker) that they deserve
  • Preventing families from taking out a costly loan against their own tax refund money, which they must do to get an “instant refund” through a commercial preparer.
