Website helps low-income and other taxpayers find free tax help

BOISE, IDAHO — Feb. 3, 2011 — Taxpayers who qualify can find free help to prepare their income tax returns by going to the Idaho State Tax Commission’s website at

The free assistance, offered at locations throughout Idaho, is designed to help most low-income, elderly, and disabled taxpayers with simple federal and Idaho tax returns. Those who are submitting a state return only to get a grocery credit refund can also get help, as well as those filing a federal return only to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit.

The list of volunteer sites is available through the “Free tax help – Idaho volunteer site listings” link under “Quick Picks.”  

Most locations offer electronic filing for faster refunds. Some offer help in Spanish. All are staffed by volunteers trained by the Internal Revenue Service and the Idaho State Tax Commission. 

To find a site by phone, taxpayers can call the Idaho CareLine at 2-1-1 or (800) 926-2588 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain Time, or AARP’s automated system at (888) 227-7669.
