    PLEASE NOTE: The session on January 29 has been canceled.

    We’ll help you with your taxes plus some. Our IRS-certified volunteers will prepare your taxes and review them for accuracy. Financial advocate volunteers can help you get a handle on your money while you’re waiting—direct deposit your refund with a prepaid card, figure out how much of your refund you can save for emergencies, check your credit report, and more.


    Our walk-in sites are popular so please be on time. Being early does not increase your chances of getting your taxes done. Order is determined randomly using a computer system after you sign in at the start of the clinic. Depending upon how many people are there, we might not be able to serve everyone.

    Please allow for about 2-4 hours to have your taxes completed.


      Tuesdays: 5:30 p.m.
      Thursdays: 5:30 p.m.
      Saturdays: 9 a.m.
