Free Tax Prep Initiative


United Way of Greater Cincinnati believes all individuals deserve economic well-being. Our Free Tax Prep initiative provides free income tax preparation and filing services.

Funded by the Department of Treasury and Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Free Tax Prep is powered by our network of hundreds of committed volunteers dedicated to helping families and individuals have stronger financial futures and experience less stress during filing.

Many hardworking people in our region qualify for tax credits, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit, but are not getting the full refund they deserve. United Way can help.

In addition, Free Tax Prep also helps families save an average of approximately $300 in tax preparation fees.
