Earned Income Tax Clinic Opens for Season

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.

You can look here to learn if you qualify, or stop by 450 Washington Street between 4 pm and 8 pm Mondays and Tuesdays or on Saturdays between 9 am and 1 pm. If you qualify, you will need to be able to provide these documents.

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.

At the end of the season, the tax clinic totals up the amount of all the refunds they processed for the community and it is almost more than $2 million! Come on by the tax clinic and get your taxes done for free and (hopefully) enjoy a few extra dollars in your bank account. For questions, contact 617-822-8182.
