Metrocash can help low-to-moderate-income taxpayers file their returns for free. If you make less than $51,000 a year, you qualify for assistance.

Metrocash has dozens of locations and is the only IRS-backed organization in the Richmond area.
If you'd like to do it yourself without buying the software, you have two options, but only if your 2012 income was below $57,000. "IRS free file" lets you choose from more than a dozen participating software companies. Filing your federal returns using the software on this site is absolutely free. Most have added fees for filing state returns, but there are a few that let you do it for free.
More than 2 million Virginians qualify to file state and federal returns using the Virginia Department of Taxation's "free file". Like the IRS site, it has seven different tax programs to choose from - and none of them will cost you any money.
