Trident United Way and SC Thrive have worked together for more than a decade to provide free tax filing assistance at the Berkeley and Dorchester Prosperity Centers, in addition to a host of other sites throughout the Tri-County. 

You may qualify to have your taxes prepared at no cost if you have an adjusted gross income of $65,000 or less per year for individual filers ($95,000 if married filing jointly). When you meet with your trained tax counselor, you will receive tax preparation assistance as well as a basic financial wellness education.

Whether you want to reduce debt, establish a rainy day fund, buy a home or save for college or retirement, tax counselors and SC Thrive partners can connect you to free credit counseling and debt management assistance tools.

SC Thrive's start date for filing tax returns is February 5, 2019.
