United Way of the Mid-South’s Free Tax Prep is open for business! Our Free Tax Prep program helps eligible Mid-Southerners — individuals and families whose household income was below $57,000 in 2020 — take advantage of every applicable deduction, like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).  With 17 drop off locations, you can have your taxes filed for free by a certified IRS tax preparer with minimal contact.

If your earned income in 2019 was higher than in 2020, you can use the 2019 amount to figure out your Earned Income Tax Credit for 2020. Just go to www.irs.gov/credits-deductions/individuals/earned-income-tax-credit-eitc for more information.
