Tax FILING

FILING TAXES IS IMPORTANT

Filing federal and state taxes can be complicated and costly; however, it is important and legally required. It creates a record of your income, which is important when you apply for an apartment or a loan. You may also be eligible for a tax refund. You can claim a refund up to three years later. This page will provide a list of resources to help you file taxes for free and where you can locate free tax filing sites near you.

REQUEST W-2 FORMS FROM CEO

W-2 tax forms have information on the income you earned and the taxes withheld from your paycheck. You can use your W-2 to file your taxes.

W-2 forms will be mailed to the home address of every CEO participant. They will not be sent to your CEO office. If you have not received your W-2 form, provide CEO staff in your office with proof of identification and fill out the W-2 replacement request form. CEO staff can provide you with this form; please complete it and give it back to them.

If you are a former CEO participant whose address changed, ask a CEO staff member to fill out the "Address Change Notification Form."
