Because we are a volunteer-driven income tax assistance program, we are reliant on the help of volunteers to provide this service for free to those who are eligible.  It is for this reason that we only schedule appointments two weeks out at a time.  If our appointments are currently full, we will open another round of appointments again within two weeks. Thank you for your understanding.

Appointments are now open. Answer a few questions here to get started.


Please only schedule one appointment per person. If you need to change or cancel your appointment, please call 651-287-0187 and select option 3.

We cannot assist with your tax return if you have income from cryptocurrency, rental income, or if you have filed for bankruptcy in the tax year you wish to file. There are other less-than-common situations we may not be able to assist you with also. If you are unsure whether we can assist with your situation, please contact our office at 651-287-0187.

In order for us to prepare your taxes, you must have all of your tax documents in hand. Please see our What To Bring Checklist before you schedule your appointment to ensure you have everything you need for your appointment.

For anyone with greater than $6,000 of self-employment income, please see the information below to schedule an appointment for the self-employed.

*Note: If appointments are full, see if our DIY Tax Prep service is right for you*


We prepare taxes for sole-proprietors, independent contractors, and single member LLCs. If you had employees, we are not able to do your taxes.

Note: Only returning self-employment customers can schedule an appointment online, all others will need to call for an appointment.  If you are self-employed and have not had your taxes prepared at Prepare + Prosper since 2018 or earlier, you will also need to call 651-262-2169 to schedule. Please also call this number if you need to cancel or reschedule.

For Renters’ Credit or Property Tax Filing ONLY

We will be scheduling M1PR-only filing appointments throughout the season for services in April. Appointments will not be available to schedule online and will be held after the regular filing season deadline.


If you need to file a 2022 M1PR, and you are comfortable working with online software, another option is to consider using our Do-It-Yourself tax preparation to help you file for the property tax or renters tax credit on your own.  From our DIY page, you will be given instruction to access the program, and you will be able to ask questions if you have trouble filing the form yourself.  This form needs to be filed before August 15, 2023. Credits and refunds will begin to be issued sometime in July.
