For Personal Tax Returns for Households Making Less than $64,000

Community members can get their taxes done for free, thanks to a partnership between United Way of King County and Highline College. Households that make less than $64,000 are eligible, as long as tax returns do not involve business taxes, rental income, or sale of property or stocks.

Participants will need to bring the following:

— Social Security cards/individual tax identification numbers (ITINs) and birthdates for everyone who will be listed on the return.

— Photo ID.

— All tax statements, such as W-2 forms, 1099 forms and SSA-1099 forms.
