Free Tax Clinic – Open for 2024 Tax Season


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 usually run from February through the tax filing deadline.

Since the tax filing deadline has passed, the clinic is closed. If you had your taxes done this year and need to reach someone, call 617-822-8182 and leave a message.

Customers can drop by the tax clinic at 450 Washington Street in Dorchester on Mondays and Tuesdays from 4 pm to 8 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm.

Call 617-822-8182 for more information.

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.
