The City of Chicago 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 its nonprofit partner, Ladder Up, to offer free tax help throughout the tax season and at various points in the off-season.
Please note that due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, all tax sites are closed and in-person services are suspended.
Ladder Up is offering completely remote tax help for those who qualify and have either a smartphone or computer with internet and an email address - please visit www.goladderup.org/VirtualTAP for more information.
Please also note that the IRS extended the deadline for the regular filing season from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020. Please also note that if the Federal and State governments owe you a refund, there is no penalty for filing after the July 15 deadline.
