CHICAGO — The City of Chicago is offering free assistance for some residents to prepare their federal and state tax returns through Tax Prep Chicago, helping them maximize their tax rebates and troubleshoot other tax issues.

Families earning up to $55,000 and individuals earning up to $30,000 annually qualify for free help through the program, which also helps immigrants and anyone without a Social Security Number find and need renew their ITIN tax number to process their return. The City says there’s as much as $200 million in unclaimed tax rebate dollars.

“To help residents both renew ITIN and to protect them from predatory agencies that are known to target our immigrant communities, the City of Chicago is urging residents to seek reliable assistance at one of the Tax Prep Chicago sites,” said Department of Family and Support Services Commissioner Lisa Morrison Butler.
