Free tax preparation services for low-income wage earners

Are you a working individual whose annual income is less than $20K or a member of a household whose total annual income is less than $40K?  Are you interested in having a trained person help you e-file your federal, state and local income tax returns for FREE?  Are you determined to keep all of your tax refund instead of using a huge part of it to pay for filing fees and interest on “rapid refund” loans?

The Allegheny County Money In Your Pocket Coalition is working to get the highest possible tax refund for wage-earners whose annual incomes do not exceed $20,000 for an individual or $40,000 for a household that includes at least one dependent.  Single parents, parents of adult children with a disability, veterans, dislocated workers, people who don’t “have to” file, and independent students are some of the groups that have taken advantage of this service in the past.

This year, DHS is offering free tax preparation services by-appointment-only at the Human Services Building in Downtown Pittsburgh, Monday through Thursday, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. from January until April 15.

The HSB has free parking behind the building after 4:30 for participants. The lot entrance is on Fort Pitt Boulevard. The HSB is also accessible by several bus routes, with stops at the Smithfield Street and Fort Pitt Boulevard sides of the building. Get directions to One Smithfield Street

Call 2-1-1 to see if you qualify for this FREE service and to schedule your one-hour appointment at the Human Services Building, One Smithfield Street, Pittsburgh, PA, 15222.
