Tax Guide

Our Tax Guide is developed and provided to resource families for your use in supporting the at-risk children and youth in their care during the tax year. ARFI updates its Tax Guide every year to provide current guidance on tax issues relating to resource families. A printed complementary copy of our tax guide is available at all caregiver tax workshops. If you would like to host a tax workshop for resource families, please contact RC Services, LLC, or (206) 251-1230.
