I have a family member who owes 4 years of unfiled back taxes.

Customer Question

I have a family member who owes 4 years of unfiled back taxes. No idea how much is owed. There has been chemical dependency, rehab, unemployment, inability to find any tax documents due to living in a haze, has lost everything (which was a good living, home, jobs) etc. Now, he wants to move on and get back on his feet, he has to start by updating his taxes, he is scared to do this and does not know how to go about this, especially without money. Where do we go for help? Are there any non=profit organizations to help him? We live in Washington State. Thank you.
