Tax-Aid offers free service to people that earn less than $64,000 a year.

Tax-Aid is offering virtual tax services. That means you can email or mail us all of your tax documents and we will prepare your tax return for you. Everything will be sent back to you via dropbox, email or mail. If you want to email us your documents, you will either need a scanner or the camera on your phone or computer to take photos of your tax documents. Watch this short video to learn more about how Tax-Aid’s virtual service works:

If you earned more than $64,000 we will not be able to help you with your taxes.

Please follow these steps:

Step 1:

Complete our tax questionnaire completely

Click this link to complete the questionnaire (If you earned more than $64,000 in 2023, you are not eligible for Tax-Aid’s assistance. Please do not complete the questionnaire.).

If you prefer, you may download, print and mail us the questionnaire via US mail to our office along with COPIES OF all of your tax documents using the Checklist below. DO NOT SEND US YOUR ORIGINAL TAX DOCUMENTS. WE ARE NOT ABLE TO RETURN THESE DOCUMENTS TO YOU AND THEY WILL BE DESTROYED.
Please note, we check our mail only once a week so this is the slowest option.
