Qualifying for one of our two tax filing options is quick and easy.

The first option includes our volunteer-supported tax preparation program. With our volunteer-supported tax preparation,  we actually prepare and electronically file the return for you.  There is never a charge for any of our volunteer-supported services.

The second option is a self-file option through H & R Block / United Way with a program called MyFreeTaxes. This option is free as long as you meet the income qualifications.

All options provide for free e-filing of your federal and state returns. These two processes are described in more detail below.




We prepare the tax return based on information you provide. Our volunteer sites will begin opening on January 22 2024.

We recruit and train volunteers to prepare tax returns under the guidance of the IRS and our experienced Site Coordinators and Staff. 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 $66,000 or less. We offer tax preparation services year-round by appointment. Our regular tax filing season runs January through April and the off-season runs May 15th to November 15th.

We are also able to assist with opening a direct deposit account for your tax refunds and provide you with information regarding additional financial education and empowerment services.

In order for us to assist you with preparing your returns, you will need to provide a picture ID for yourself and your spouse (if filing a joint return) and social security cards for all individuals (Yourself, Spouse and Dependents) included on the tax return.

Please view our tax preparation Locations to find a location and hours of operation for all tax services. In any case, we are available year-round to answer questions and assist with your tax filing issues
