YWCA Evanston/North Shore and the Chicago-based Center for Economic Progress have collaborated to offer free tax preparation classes to low-income Evanston residents this week.

Families who make less than $50,000 collectively and individuals with incomes less than $25,000 can attend the classes for free at 1215 Church St., according to a news release. The nonprofits offer the classes on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants can receive help in filing Earned Income Tax Credit claims, opening bank accounts and purchasing prepaid debit cards for tax refunds.

Interested residents should bring all W-2 and 1099 tax forms, Social Security cards, a valid photo ID and a copy of last year’s tax return, among other forms.
