Additional information

Just-A-Start's Tax Help Clinic is first-come, first-serve site, no appointment necessary. Our IRS-trained volunteers focus on maximizing tax credits and are trained to handle a variety of tax situations.

The physical tax site will be closed until May 26th, to align with the Governor's order regarding service oriented businesses. We will re-open as a “scan and go” site where your documents are scanned and the filer leaves. We will then contact you when your return is ready for review. You can also visit for the most accurate updates about our tax services.

In addition to the physical site, Just-A-Start will be doing remote tax preparation through July 15th.
