Free Tax Help

In response to social distancing requirements Hopelink Centers are closed to the public but still providing service remotely and food in pre-packed boxes. Call 425.869.6000 or your local Center for more information.

Out of an abundance of caution and in alignment with recommendations from Public Health, United Way of King County Free Tax Prep Sites are temporarily closed until further notice due to the risks associated with COVID-19. For updates on when sites will be open again, please visit

Hopelink is working with United Way of King County to provide support for people who would like help filing their tax returns. Free Tax Preparation is a tool to help people keep more of the money they earn so that they can care for their families—and even save for the future.

The service is free for households that make less than $66,000, with tax returns that do not involve business taxes, rental income, or sale of property or stock. The service does not prepare complex forms, such as out-of-state returns.

The service will be available at Hopelink’s Bellevue and Shoreline service centers through April 18.
