HomeStart to host Goodwill's Good Tax Program

Making Life Easier for Individuals During Tax Season


Filing state and federal tax returns every year can be a painful and increasingly complicated process – or not. The IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers at Goodwill make it FREE and EASY to prepare state and federal income taxes – and get the refunds you qualify for.

It’s a fast-growing program available to both families and individuals earning less than $57,000 a year.

Before you schedule your appointment, please read Goodwill's Scope of Services to see what taxes they can and cannot prepare.
