Free Income Tax Help

This page lists free income tax help and tax preparation sites offered throughout Idaho for all low-income taxpayers and senior citizens with simple tax returns.

The page also lists sites that don't offer income tax return preparation and are designed as self-prepared taxes only. At these sites, volunteers help taxpayers file their own taxes using online software that prepares and e-files the returns.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program is sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The Tax-Aide sites are run by certified volunteers from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Foundation.

Before visiting a site, make sure you bring all the documents needed to file a return. See "What to Bring."

All sites are listed by county. Listings are updated frequently.
