Income Tax Preparation

FREE Tax Return Preparation for Low Income Taxpayers

Do You Qualify?

You should have an income of less than $35,000 (or so) and not have any complex issues such as owning rental property, owning a business, multiple state income, or military income. Sorry, we would like to help our soldiers, but the returns are too complex.

Who Prepares the Return?

Alexandria Technical & Community College (ATCC) accounting students and other volunteers have been specially trained to help you with all the new credits, the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Dependant Care Credit, Rent Credit, and the Minnesota Property Tax Refund, if you qualify. Every return is quality checked and reviewed by instructors and supervisors.
