Free Tax Clinic


As a member of the Boston Tax Help Coalition, we offer free tax preparation for hard-working Dorchester residents and families. Anyone who worked in the previous year and made less than a certain amount, can get their taxes prepared and filed for free. Clinics run from late January through the tax filing deadline.

Trained tax volunteers staff the clinic and, in addition to preparing and filing the tax returns, provide services including credit counseling, benefit screening, and FAFSA assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patient statements are issued on a weekly basis for any new patient responsibilities that have been identified within the previous week. For accounts with balances less than $25.00, additional statements are issued every five weeks. For accounts with balances of $25.00 or more, if the patient has not paid the balance by the time the next statement is due, the account is referred to our reminder agency, which then begins a series of letters and calls reminding them that their balance is overdue.  No additional statements are sent out.

Your provider can send an electronic prescription to the pharmacy located on the ground floor of the Health Center. You can pick up your prescription prior to leaving the Health Center. You can also get your prescription called in to an outside pharmacy as long as you bring the phone number with you.

Check with your insurance company to see if your prescriptions are covered by your policy. If they are, you may be restricted to certain pharmacies and you may need to make a co-payment.
