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 https://www.justastart.org/jas-covid-19-updates/ 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.
