Places a person can get his taxes done include the IRS volunteer income tax assistance program, the tax counseling for the elderly program, IRS free file tax software and a retail tax preparation company, according to Yahoo Finance and Forbes. An individual can also go to a certified public accountant.
As of 2013, the IRS’s free volunteer income tax assistance program enlists trained volunteers to help taxpayers with tax credits and free electronic filing, notes Yahoo Finance. Locations include malls, community centers, libraries and schools. Taxpayers are better off making an appointment at a center as far ahead of the tax day deadline as possible to avoid long lines.
The free tax counseling for the elderly program is intended for individuals older than 60 who have a low- to mid-income, says Yahoo Finance. The AARP provides tax preparers who are aware of tax issues related to pension and retirement plans. As of 2013, taxpayers don't have to be AARP members to take advantage of the program.
The IRS free online filing system offers free tax preparation help for taxpayers with a $57,000 or lower income and free online filing for everyone, according to Yahoo Finance. The IRS offers in-person and phone assistance for individuals who need it.
