Free tax preparation service begins

January 23, 2014

Preparation of state and federal taxes by a Milwaukee organization has begun helping the public for another tax season

The Milwaukee Asset Building Coalition and the Social Development Commission (SDC) are again doing taxes for free for Milwaukee County residents. The tax services are offered at no charge so eligible residents can get all of their tax returns back and avoid high preparation fees or refund anticipation loans.
The tax preparation is being offered Monday through Saturday at SDC’s three sites at 4041 N. Richards Street, 2701 S. Chase Street and 6848 N. Teutonia Avenue. A fourth team of IRS certified tax preparers is also at sites on different days of the week located across Milwaukee County. To view the schedule of sites, dates and times of the free tax service as well as see what you will need to bring with you, go to
The tax service is in its 13th season of helping residents maximize their tax returns. During the first 12 years of its existence, the program has returned more than $146 million in tax refunds and credits back to residents and the local economy. The program will run through April 15.VITA Richards 1-21-14 004 e
