An alternative to using paid tax preparers is to visit a free tax preparer certified by the Internal Revenue Service.  Persons who  are low-income, disabled, homebound, speak English as a second language, age 60 or over, or a military service member or family member may be eligible for this reliable and free tax preparation service.

The University of Missouri has put together a searchable database of free tax preparation sites throughout the nation. You can also find the nearest site by calling 1-800-829-1040. Learn more about the free tax preparation program and eligibility requirements.
