TAP does NOT prepare income tax returns for taxpayers with incomes over $60,000 or who own rental property.

The IRS does not offer direct help to taxpayers, but it does offer links to FREE help preparing your return (from trained volunteers) and filling out tax forms (using brand-name software).

You can also do your own return using FREE software.
