Did you work in 2020 and earn less than $57,000? If so, you can get your taxes prepared for FREE by the Boston Tax Help Coalition. The Coalition’s IRS-trained tax preparers do a thorough check for any money that should come back to you through the Earned Income Tax Credit or a tax refund.

For everyone’s safety, the Coalition is preparing taxes remotely during COVID-19. How this is done will depend on whether you have a smartphone or scanner to send documents digitally.

If you have a smartphone or scanner:

Follow the instructions on the Coalition’s Virtual Tax Prep page to get started.

If you do NOT have a smartphone or scanner:

Use the form below to set up a phone appointment with a Boston Tax Help Coalition tax preparer. The preparer will call you to begin the intake process and schedule a time for you to drop off the necessary tax documents at the Roxbury Center for Financial Empowerment. If you prefer to drop off documents at another location, you can find other tax sites that offer drop-off tax preparation.

Victoria and Cynthia: Tax Buddies

For years, Victoria has been coming to the Roxbury Center for Financial Empowerment to get her taxes done for free. “Everybody’s friendly and nice,” she said. “It’s worth it!”

But Victoria’s not the type to keep a good thing secret. She started bringing her friend of nearly 30 years, Cynthia, to get her taxes done, too. After they got their taxes done (and Victoria netted a refund of over $1,000), the two ladies headed out the door to treat themselves to lunch.
