Free Tax Preparation Services for Qualified

Intuit Financial Freedom Foundation (IFFF) to Offer Free Tax Preparation Services to Lower-Middle Income Taxpayers at Oceanside Public Library

Taxpayers who qualify:

  •  (AGI) of $36,000 or less in 2019
  • Eligible for Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
  • Active duty military

All qualifying taxpayers will have the opportunity to prepare and file their federal and state tax returns at no cost, using TurboTax® Free File Program (TTFFP) software. TTFFP helps taxpayers identify and claim all of the tax credits and deductions for which they are eligible. Volunteers will be on-hand to assist as needed.

This event will promote the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and ensure EITC-eligible families and individuals claim this important tax credit. Currently, there are an estimated 600,000 eligible Californians. Based on income and family size, EITC could boost a tax refund by up to $6,318. Individuals can learn if they are EITC-eligible, by using the EITC Calculator at

The event is part of a statewide tour sponsored by the Intuit Financial Freedom Foundation (IFFF). Thanks to committed Intuit employee volunteers, this event is expected to serve more than 100 people.
