The 2021 Tax Season has ended! We are making plans to offer appointments for clients who want to file for past years. Check back here in June for more information about making a back tax appointment.
Our Tax Program will be back in 2023! Sign up for our email list for updates on next year's Tax Program.
If you need to file a return for 2021, our Facilitated Self-Assistance (FSA) service is still available. With FSA, you'll input your own tax return. If you get stuck, you can email one of our IRS-Certified Volunteers for help with simple tax questions. Interested? To get started with FSA, click here.
Do I need to file a tax return? Will it benefit me to file?
Not sure if you ought to file a tax return? Here are some guidelines on when to file:
- You may need to file if you are:
- Single, under 65, and your income was at least $12,550
- Single, 65 or older, and your income was at least $14,250
- Married and filing jointly and both spouses are under 65, with total income at least $25,100
- You must also file if:
- You have net earnings from self-employment of at least $400
- You or any of your dependents received advance payments of a Premium Tax Credit through the Marketplace (You should get a record of this on a 1095-A)
- You received advance payments of the 2021 Child Tax Credit
- If you are between 25 and 64 years old and received any earned income from employment or self-employment you should file because you may be entitled to an earned income tax credit.
- If you have a child and did not receive the child tax credit payments because you haven't filed taxes in the past, even if your income is $0, you may benefit from filing so you can receive your child tax credit. Read here for more information.
