Free Tax-Assistance

Our Free Tax-Assistance Program helps taxpayers with lower incomes maximize their tax refund or reduce their taxes due. Prepared by IRS-certified volunteers, taxes are filed electronically, allowing those most taxpayers expecting refunds to receive their money within 5 to 10 days of filing. Volunteers are trained to look for specific eligibility requirements in order to help participants take advantage of the Earned Income Credit and the Child Tax Credit, and more -- credits that can garner significant refunds for working families and individuals. Services are offered February through April.

THE 2014 TAX SEASON HAS ENDED.

CALL IN JANUARY TO GET THE FIRST APPOINTMENTS FOR 2015.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO HELP WITH TAXES FOR PRIOR YEARS OR ANSWER TAX-RELATED QUESTIONS OUTSIDE OF THE TAX SEASON.

Call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 or the MA Dept. of Revenue at 1-800-392-6089 for assistance.

If you are interested in volunteering for the 2015 tax season, please call 413-376-1179. Volunteer training begins in December.
