Goodwill Offers Free Tax Preparation

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Tax season can be a headache for most, but one non-profit is making the process a lot easier.

Goodwill is offering free tax prep assistance for both our state and federal returns. It's for families making less than $50,000 and individuals who make less than $25,000.

Every year hundreds of people look to Goodwill for help with their taxes. Not only does it take the stress of filing off us, it can save us a lot of money.

"Typically it’s about $200 to get your taxes done, so we're able to offer the exact same service completely free. Our participants are very excited and I think the community has really embraced the program," Courtney Geiger, Director of Mission Services for Goodwill, said.

Goodwill will help us with our taxes until April 12.

The following locations offer tax prep services:

Saturdays: 9am-1pm
Tuesdays: 9am-2pm, February Only
