Wednesday, February 1, 2023 is the day that a new Washington State tax credit called the Working Families Tax Credit, becomes available to eligible Washington households!

To Access Free Tax Preparation: 

  1. Call 509-593-8257 and leave a message with a contact name, and phone number.  A volunteer will call you to schedule an in-person appointment at the Senior Center, 720 Sprague Street, Walla Walla. Appointments are required—no walk-ins.
  2. Arrive for your appointment at your schedule date and time and complete a short intake form and a brief interview.
  3. Bring all necessary tax documents with you relating to  income and possible deductions, photo ID for the taxpayer and spouse, social security cards or ITIN papers for the taxpayer, spouse and all dependents.  If possible, bring a copy last year’s tax return.
  4. Tax-Aide staff will assist filers with the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit and the Working Families Tax credit, if eligible!  

If you are preparing and filing your own taxes, you will be able to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit on your 2022 federal tax form, if eligible.  To claim the new Washington State Working Families Tax Credit, you will need to apply to the Washington State Department of Revenue. You can apply using a paper form or an online form.  You can find out more about eligibility and how to apply at: https://workingfamiliescredit.wa.gov/

Staff at BMAC are available to answer questions about the new Working Families Tax Credit and to assist eligible individuals and families with the filing process.  For more information on the Working Families Tax Credit or assistance with the application, please contact BMAC at 509-529-4980.
