Earned Income Tax Clinic Saves Community Members Millions

Thanks to the dedicated volunteers and the Boston Tax Coalition, Codman’s Earned Income Tax Clinic put more than $1.2 million back into the pocket of community members. The average federal tax refund was approximately $2,000, and the clinic served 604 residents.

Each year, Codman partners with the Boston Tax Help Coalition to provide free and specialized tax preparation and filing services for community members. Codman’s Tax Clinic is hosted at our 450 Washington Street location and is available for anyone who qualifies. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) helps families with low to moderate income get a tax break. If you qualify, you can use the credit to reduce the taxes you owe – or even increase your tax refund.

The tax clinic is staffed by volunteers who are certified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and can also offer some advice. As preparers get your documents processed, they may be able to assist you with resources about debt collection, housing assistance, immigration, legal services, and more.

Anyone who has used the tax clinic’s services and has a question about their refund can call 617-822-8182 and leave a voicemail message.
