Good Taxes


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 $54,000 a year.

GoodTAXES is available during tax season from January 29 to April 17 and throughout the year at various locations.

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