The 2021 tax season at Prepare + Prosper looks a little different this year. We are still here to help you prepare your taxes for free and claim your maximum refund, but instead of in-person tax clinics our IRS-certified volunteers are preparing taxes virtually via Zoom, and we have a very limited number of in-person drop-off options for people who don’t have access to technology. New this year, we are offering free support to help you do your own taxes online.

Do your own taxes with support from P+P!

Filing yourself online can be a great option for people this year, especially if you are unable to get an appointment with a tax preparer. Prepare + Prosper has created tools to help you feel confident and prepared to do your own taxes online for free.

Join a free, weekly thirty minute training! Get help getting started on preparing your own tax return with free TaxSlayer software. You won’t prepare and file your taxes during the training, instead staff will provide you tips and directions on how to use the software and start your return, and walk you through the documents you’ll need so the software can do its job!

Staff will answer questions you have and provide you with a link to a free version of TaxSlayer, the preparation software our volunteers use. This software has less restrictions than other software, and has NO income restrictions! You will also get a free copy of our Self-Prep Tax Guide, a how-to manual for preparing taxes with TaxSlayer.

Can’t attend a session and just want access to the Self-Prep Guide and TaxSlayer? No problem! Email

*You will need a device on which you can access Zoom (a laptop/desktop computer is ideal, a smartphone works, too). We recommend attendees have a least basic computer proficiency.
