Free Tax Preparation

The John Boner Neighborhood Centers is part of Indy Free Tax Prep, Central Indiana’s Network for Free Tax Preparation.  As part of the IRS’ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, we offer free tax preparation and other services to eligible residents.

What happens at the tax site? You will see a greeter, a tax preparer and quality reviewer.

Do you qualify?

If you made $66,000 or less last year, you may qualify to have your taxes prepared for free. Free tax preparation service is not available if, last year, you owned or sold rental property; sold a business; had more than $25,000 in business expenses; or bought/sold stocks, bonds, or mutual funds.
