Tax Day is less than a month away, L.A. Controller Ron Galperin seeks to reduce the stress of meeting the May 17 filing deadline by offering low- to moderate-income Angelenos a new, interactive map of free tax preparation service providers throughout the area. The map lists 55 tax prep assistance locations that include local community-based organizations and resource centers.
Galperin created the free tax preparation map specifically to aid individuals and households who earn less than $57,000 annually and qualify for state and federal Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC). Taxpayers who have disabilities, are elderly or with limited English skills are encouraged to check eligibility for these free services. Locate a service provider at lacontroller.org/TaxPrepLA.
