And here's some information on the United Way's free tax prep program called "Earn It. Keep It. Save it.
What is "Earn It Keep It Save It?"
In concert with United Way of Southern Nevada's Impact Area of Financial Stability, the "Earn It Keep It Save It" collaborative provides free tax preparation, helping families whose household income is less than $51,000 earn the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other federal tax credits. Through a general grant from the IRS and matched funding from local partners, United Way supports roughly 34 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites across the Las Vegas Valley. VITA sites are staffed by IRS trained and certified volunteers who prepare tax returns at no cost to qualifying individuals and families. Families earning this credit use their refund for immediate needs, such as rent, food and bill assistance, yet many put their refund into savings for college, a house, or an emergency fund for the long term.
