Free Income Tax Services

For many hardworking families, filing taxes and receiving a refund is a chance to catch up on bills and pay for basic needs. Two important tax credits, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC), can provide eligible households with monetary assistance. Unfortunately, one in five eligible workers does not claim these credits.

To help qualified households receive EITC assistance, Associated Ministries and Pierce County Asset Building Coalition sponsors free tax preparation services available at the Tacoma Housing Authority’s Family Investment Center at Salishan. If you would like help with your taxes, contact Associated Ministries at (253) 426-1516, or email amya@associatedministries.org.

  • Proof of identification (photo ID)
  • Social Security cards for you, your spouse and dependents 
  • An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) assignment letter may be substituted for you, your spouse and your dependents if you do not have a Social Security number
