UPDATE: New appointment times have been added!

You can make an appointment by clicking here. Please provide an email address when making an appointment, and use the “notes” area for any special information you want to provide to us.

Who is Eligible: We can help you with your return if your income is from only the following: wages, scholarships, interest, dividends, simple self-employment, simple pensions, unemployment insurance, social security or small miscellaneous items (gambling winnings, for example).

If, after beginning work on your return, we cannot complete your return, we will give you all of the information you gave to us as well as a copy of the work we were able to complete so that you can take it to a paid preparer or seek other assistance.

Do-it-yourself free tax help online. Several sponsors have partnered to offer My Free Taxes, which you can access at A free helpline for this service only is available at 855-698-9435 from 9am-10pm (EST) Monday-Saturday. You are eligible for this service only if you are a US citizen or permanent resident, because the software provided does not prepare nonresident returns. Gross income limitation for this service is $58,000. This service is still available.
