Free Assistance with Filing Taxes

Individual filing taxes

Trident United Way and SC Thrive have worked together for more than a decade to provide free tax filing assistance. Self-service filing is available through Thrive Hub. If you need additional assistance in filing your taxes you may call one of our Resource Connection Centers to schedule an appointment with a tax counselor.

You may qualify for tax filing assistance at no cost if you have an adjusted gross income of $73,000, regardless of filing status.

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.
