FREE TAX PREP


Whether your return is simple or complicated, we can help you. We offer free tax preparation and financial services. With us, free really does mean free.

47 YEARS OF (TAX) FUN.

Services at Prepare + Prosper are provided by a team of 500+ IRS-certified volunteers who are passionate about taxes and finances. All tax returns are doubled checked for accuracy to make sure we’re getting you the maximum refund. We can do federal and Minnesota returns, including property tax refunds for renters and homeowners.

DO YOU QUALIFY?

INDIVIDUALS

If you’re filing as a single and make less than $35,000 a year—you’re in luck! Grab your documents and find a free tax clinic.

FAMILIES

We can help families whose household income is $55,000 or less a year. Make sure to bring your documents and find a free tax clinic!

SELF-EMPLOYED

If you’re self-employed (with no employees) and make $55,000 or less a year, we can help you with your taxes. You’ll need to make an appointment at our self-employment clinic if you made more than $6,000 or operated a home day care, otherwise you can go to any of our sites. But first check our list of what to bring for all documents and forms you need!

We can’t help you if…

We aren’t able to do your taxes if you have income from driving a cab, rental income, or filed bankruptcy in the tax year you wish to file. There are also other, less common situations that are out of our scope. If you are unsure whether we can do your taxes, please give us a call at 651-287-0187.

ARE YOU READY?

BRING WHAT YOU NEED.

Make sure you bring all of the necessary documents and forms with you so that we can prepare your taxes and get you your maximum refund.

There’s a separate list for those who are self-employed.

NEED A TAX ID?

If you don’t have a Social Security number, you will need an ITIN—an Individual Tax Identification Number—to complete your tax return(s). We can help you get one for free!

HAVE QUESTIONS?
