White Center volunteers bring $1 million to free tax clients

Trained, IRS-Certified volunteers at YWCA Greenbridge and YWCA Technology Center in Seola Gardens are offering free tax preparation to anyone making $51,000 or less.

In addition to tax help, drop-in clients can enroll in healthcare and public benefits at the site. This service is always free, and help is available in many languages.

Since January, these community volunteers have helped 454 families and individuals file their taxes, bringing $1,003,750 in tax refunds back to local residents. The tax site is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5-9, and Saturdays from 10-2 through April 15.

The YWCA centers are two of 19 free tax sites staffed by United Way of King County’s Free Tax Campaign team. Find additional times and locations for free tax help online at www.uwkc.org/taxhelp.
