Free tax preparation available at Foster High School through April 19, 2019

Free tax preparation is available at Foster High School on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:00pm to 8:00pm through April 19th, 2019. Take the stress out of filing your taxes and have United Way of King County prepare your return for free!

Households that make less than $66,000, with tax returns that do NOT involve business taxes, rental income, or sale of property or stocks, are eligible for this free service.

Walk-ins are welcome! All 32 of the sites operate on a drop-in basis and no appointments are set. Many sites get very crowded, especially during February and April, and you should arrive as close to the site’s opening time as possible for the best chance of getting served. The last client will be seen 30-45 minutes prior to closing. Those who arrive later may not be able to see a volunteer.

Volunteers needed at the Tukwila Pantry

The Tukwila Pantry serves about 25% of the Tukwila residential population.  That’s a lot of food that moves into food bags and into peoples’ homes.  That’s more than a million pounds of food a year.  Along with moving this amount of food there’s the need to help package bulk items into smaller sizes, stock shelves, data entry, breaking down boxes, sorting produce and canned goods, registering clients, picking up food at their source, helping to raise funds.   Tukwila Pantry needs volunteer help to help meet the tremendous need to keep people from going hungry.  If you are interested please contact the Pantry at 206-431-8293.
