Free Tax Preparation / Resources

Our tax sites are now open. If you made $56,000 or less last year, you may qualify for free tax preparation. To schedule an appointment in Baltimore City or surrounding area please call 410-234-8008. Or click here to make an appointment online.

Don’t waste your money on paid tax preparers when you can get your taxes done for free by IRS-trained and certified volunteers from the CASH Campaign? You earned it – we want you to keep it and save it! You may even be eligible to access the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) which could put thousands of dollars in your pocket. Families or individual taxpayers may qualify for free tax prep from CASH and our partners.

The CASH Campaign of Maryland is a coalition that includes Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites that offer free tax preparation services. Additionally, the CASH Campaign connects taxpayers, community stakeholders, and employers with important information about the Earned Income Tax Credit (federal and state).
