Important notes:

  • Unless noted as an Appointment Site, all TAP locations offer free tax assistance on a first-come, first-served basis. Sites will close when they reach capacity, which may be much earlier than the publicized closing time, so please arrive early.

  • If you need to amend your tax return (Form 1040X and/or Form IL-1040-X), you must call 312-588-6900 to make an appointment at a tax site. Ladder Up does not offer walk-in service for amended returns.
