The United Way of King County is seeking volunteers to help working families with tax preparation. The organization will offer free tax preparation in early 2022 to working families with the assistance of IRS-certified volunteers who will help filers claim all the tax credits and refunds to which they’re entitled. United Way of King County needs 1,000 volunteers to help in this effort.

From January through April, United Way volunteers offer free tax preparation assistance at more than 16 locations throughout the county.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, filing was all virtual in 2020. In 2022, there will be both  in-person and virtual opportunities. In addition to tax-preparation assistance, volunteers also help filers with information about public benefits, financial counseling and other services.
