GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – If you need help preparing your taxes, a local non-profit organization can help. 22News is working for you with information you need to qualify for this free service.
Community Action is offering free tax preparation to low-income families. This is the 8th year Community Action has offered tax preparation assistance.
The taxes are done by certified volunteers. The service is an attempt to help families receive their full refund.
According to Holly Kosisky, the Asset Development Coordinator of Community Action, “What happens often is the lower income folks will go to get their refund quicker will go to a professional tax service and get charged so that’s actually eating into that credit that’s supposed to be helping them.”
You have to make an appointment for this free service. You can call your local Community Action office or fill out an application online.
Tax preparation will start in on February 4th and run through April 15th.
