  • To limit in-person contact, our program will operate as a drop off/intake site only.
  • Due to limited capacity we are only able to serve tax payers we assisted in 2021, 2020, and 2019.
  • You must make an appointment to visit the tax site. 
  • IRS-trained and certified staff and volunteers prepare tax returns free of charge
  • Tax documents are reviewed for accuracy and completeness prior to preparation of tax return
  • Careful review to ensure that tax payers receive all tax credits (Rebate Recovery Credit, EITC, Child Tax Credit, American Opportunity Tax Credit, etc) for which they are eligible
  • Returns are filed electronically so that most tax payers receive their refunds within 7-10 business days.

We offer 2 options to file:
