Free Tax Preparation Program
The Alternatives Free Tax Preparation Program is currently closed.
Don't pay high fees to get your own refund. If you are single and earn less than $30,000 or a family earning under $51,000, we can prepare your Federal and State Income Tax Returns. Find out if you qualify here.

More About the Community Tax Program
Alternatives' Community Tax Program has been offering free tax preparation services since 2003. To date we've prepared over 10,000 tax returns for working families and individuals and returned over $18 million in refunds to our local community.
Our goal is to help all eligible workers claim the credits they deserve (without paying high fees) and to help them turn those refunds into financial assets.
To help us spread the word, see our outreach page.
