Free Tax Prep and Filing

At Tulsa Responds we believe that no low-to-mid-income household should have to pay to file their taxes. That’s why our IRS-certified tax preparers give free tax help to those who need it.

Our program is part of a national IRS initiative, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) to help taxpayers get access to qualified tax preparers. Nearly 20% of Tulsa households don't file their taxes because they don't owe anything, but they don't realize they might be missing out on hundreds or thousands of dollars in tax credits owed to them. That’s why we’ve joined the IRS’ national initiative, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). File your taxes with us and you’ll get your entire refund and tax credits without paying a penny in prep fees.

TAX APPOINTMENT What Should I Expect?

We do everything we can to keep your appointment as quick as possible. To help your appointment go smoothly we ask that you arrive 10 minutes before your appointment, and bring the necessary documents. Allow at least an hour to complete your appointment.

Here’s what will happen during the appointment:

You’ll meet an intake specialist.

The intake specialist will welcome you and verify you have all the required documents, then have you fill out a form.

You’ll meet your tax preparer.

Your tax preparer will prepare your taxes and check your benefits eligibility.

We quality-review your return for accuracy.

A second reviewer will ensure all details of your return are correct.

We transmit your return to the IRS.

It takes around 15 minutes to know if it was accepted or needs corrections.

Enroll in other benefits programs.

If you qualified for other benefits programs we can enroll you on the spot.
