you get the maximum refund available to you.
you feel you can prepare your own return but need a little assistance, or you don't have a computer with internet access,
visit one of our Tax Labs and an IRS-certified coach will be there to answer questions along the way.
If you feel comfortable preparing
your own returns, use our free website to e-file your Federal and State returns from the comfort of your home or office. Just
help individuals and families file their taxes. Free training is provided and schedules are flexible. Special emphasis is

families with children. Find out more.
The EITC is the largest
anti-poverty program in the nation. A family that qualifies for EITC can receive a tax refund of up to $6,242 on their 2016
tax return—money that does not have to be repaid and can significantly impact their household and help to build assets. However, millions of dollars of this tax credit typically go unclaimed every year;
estimates range from $8 to 12 million unclaimed locally each year. Find out more.
