Free tax filing assistance clinics are now open for 2020!

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 Resource Connection Centers, in addition to a host of other sites throughout the Tri-County. 

You may qualify for tax preparation assistance 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.  *Clinic locations/dates subject to change based on saff and facility availability. Call our 211 hotline for latest updates.
