CASH Campaign kicks off free tax preparation service for Baltimore region

The nonprofit CASH Campaign of Maryland kicked off its free tax preparation services for low- to moderate-income Marylanders on Friday.

The financial literacy organization will offer services at 13 sites throughout Baltimore and one each in Catonsville and Towson, where volunteers certified by the Internal Revenue Service will be available to help taxpayers prepare and electronically file their income taxes for 2017.

Last year, the Baltimore CASH Campaign was able to prepare taxes for about half of the 18,000 people who called for help. The Baltimore CASH Campaign merged with the Maryland CASH Campaign in November to combine their strengths and extend the reach of their educational programs.

The nonprofit’s free tax prep services are available to Marylanders earning less than $54,000. To find a location and set up an appointment, people may go online to www.bmorefreetaxes.org or call 410-234-8008.

The campaign kicked off the service on “National Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day” to call attention to this tax credit important to low-income workers. Tens of thousands of Marylanders failed to claim this credit, leaving tens of millions of dollars unclaimed, the CASH Campaign said.
