Tax Tips and Free Tax Clinics

by | Mar 18, 2021 | GWSA News

Through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, community organizations are hosting free virtual tax clinics. Volunteers may be able to complete and file your taxes for free, by videoconference or by phone. Our directory will regularly be updated to include these clinics.

If you’re planning to go to an in-person free tax clinic, please check our directory and call the clinic before you go. Many clinics may have been cancelled or postponed due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 or due to mandatory closures ordered by authorities.

Volunteer tax preparation clinics can be held at any time during the year, however, most clinics are offered in March and April.If you cannot find a tax preparation clinic in your area, check back again as community organizations add clinics regularly.

Remember to bring your tax slips and receipts

Volunteers need them to prepare your income tax and benefit return. If you are missing a tax slip, you may be able to get a copy online. For more information, see tax slips.
