The IRS and its partners are making a focused effort to provide financial education and let people know about tax preparation assistance that's available to individuals with disabilities. Business owners who accommodate individuals with disabilities may also be eligible for tax credits.
Special assistance is available for persons with disabilities, or for those who are elderly, have low-to-middle incomes or do not speak English. If you are a disabled veteran, please visit our Veterans with Disabilities page. Those unable to complete their tax returns because of a disability may wish to consider free tax assistance sponsored by an organization that partners with the IRS in their communities. Check out the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance or Tax Counseling for the Elderly Programs to learn more.

Partnering to Assist Persons with Disabilities
If your organization works with or serves people with disabilities who have low to moderate incomes, your organization may be a good candidate to partner with IRS for tax assistance in your community. Every year thousands of organizations nationwide join with IRS to help people who need tax help. Working together, IRS and other groups deliver financial education as well as other tax services free to the public.
