Do You Qualify?

Qualifying for one of our several tax filing options is easy and simple! There are several options available including our volunteer supported tax preparation program where we actually prepare and electronically file the return for you as well as two options for preparing yourself. All of these processes are described, below.

If you have never filed your own tax return but would like to give it a try, we can provide you with access to a computer and a tax coach that can assist with answering your questions. Please click here to find a location and hours of operation for our self-prepared tax sessions. In any case, we are available year-round to answer questions and assist with your tax filing issues.

There is never a charge for any of our volunteer supported services. The self-file options are also free as long as you meet the income qualifications. All services listed below provide free e-filing of your federal and state returns.

INTUIT TURBO TAX - FREEDOM EDITION (SELF-FILE PROGRAM)

If you have $33,000 or less in income or are eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit or are active duty military with a military W-2 and less than $64,000 in income and have an email address, you can use Intuit’s Turbo Tax Freedom Edition for preparing both your federal and state tax returns… at no cost to you. And better still, you can prepare your return on you own from home or use one of our available computers at our tax locations. This option is available for filing the current year’s federal and state(s) returns and amendments. If you would like to learn to file your own but would like some support for questions regarding either taxes or software, we offer free assistance at several of our locations.

If you make over $33,000 you are still able to use Turbo Tax but there is a fee. Also, if you need to file additional years, or amend previous years, please see our Volunteer Prepared option, below.

VOLUNTEER SUPPORTED TAX PREPARATION SERVICES - (WE PREPARE THE TAX RETURN BASED ON THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE)

Every one of our volunteers and staff has had to participate in the IRS training and certification program expressly designed for this program. We pride ourselves on delivering services that are Fast, Free and Life Changing!

In order to qualify, your household income should be $64,000 or less. We offer tax preparation services year-round; on a first-come, first-served basis during tax season, January through April and by appointment from June through October 15th.
