Filing Taxes

Explain to your refugee partner(s) what taxes are, why they exist, and how to pay them in the United States. You may assist them in learning to file their own taxes or there are free tax services they may be able to utilize.

In Western Washington Look to the United Way's Free Tax Preparation help page for information on the free services that can assist your refugee partner(s). Help them access and navigate the free tax service websites, fill out any paperwork, and assist with setting up an appointment.

Teach the refugees in a way where they can manage on their own in the future.
