Tax Filing Deadline Extended Until July 15

Getting a refund? File now to get your cash

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the federal and state tax filing deadline has been extended 90 days until July 15. However, if you think you are receiving a refund, we encourage you to file as soon as possible to receive your cash-back. 

Although most free tax sites around the state are now closed, we recognize the continued need for trustworthy, accessible tax services and there are still ways to file for free. Check out the free, online tax preparation options available:

  • Remote Drop Off – A new program by Code for America in partnership with VITA sites is available to households making $60,000 or less
  • IRS Free File – Includes a number of free online filing options for both federal and state returns available for households making $69,000 or less
  • MyFreeTaxes.com – Through United Way’s partnership with H&R Block, every household with a simple return can file their federal and state taxes for free (this option does not include filers who are contract workers, i.e. Uber or Lyft drivers)

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates about when tax sites may resume operations, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news.
