COVID-19 Update: Due to the pandemic, as of April 2020, many of our sites have closed or have limited hours to promote social distancing for the safety of our community. The site list below indicates past sites, but does not guarantee they will be open for the tax season in 2021.

Please visit our Make an appointment page here for the most up-to-date information on our Free Tax Preparation Program.
