Qualified Chicago families and individuals can receive free tax return preparation and e-filing at tax sites located across the city.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is committed to ensuring that hardworking Chicagoans can access free tax services to file their returns and claim their tax refunds. The City of Chicago works with two nonprofit partners (the Center for Economic Progress and Ladder Up) to offer free tax help throughout the tax season and at various points in the off-season. Services for the 2017 tax season will begin at many locations starting on Saturday, January 21, 2017.
