INDIANAPOLIS — People in central Indiana can get some free help filing their taxes starting Monday.

Volunteers from Indy Free Tax Prep are offering their services to people living in Marion, Hendricks, Boone, and Morgan Counties. The volunteers won’t charge the service fee that is normally associated with having someone prepare tax documents.

“For all of those who are overwhelmed at this time of year, each year, by forms, deductions, qualifications; well, I want you to know, you’re in good company. Even Albert Einstein once complained, ‘The hardest thing1 in the world to understand is income taxes,'” said Mayor Joe Hogsett. “He speaks for all of us in no small measure, and that’s why we’re all here today: to make this all a little bit easier.”

Purdue University experts will be on hand to provide financial education and asset-building programs. The United Way is sponsoring the program along with the City of Indianapolis, Indy Public Libraries and the IRS.

The tax filing help is taking place at several locations, including community centers, senior centers and public libraries. John Helling, Interim CEO of Indianapolis Public Library says this program helps their mission to serve the community.

“Libraries serve so many vital functions and roles in the community, and this program fits perfectly in our mission to be a hub of free information, programs, [and] resources for every person in our surrounding neighborhoods,” said Helling.

The assistance is available for families that made less than $66,000 in 2021. The following locations are participating in the program:
