As the IRS tax filing season begins, SNHS has announced its support in helping residents in Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties file their taxes. Free tax preparation services are available at a number of sites located in the two counties.
Working through the Ca$h Coalition of Southeastern New Hampshire in Rockingham County and the AARP Tax Aide Program in Nashua, a number of free tax preparation sites have been established that are part of a statewide network of sites available to prepare tax returns.
The network also includes the Workplace Success office at 60 Rogers Street in Manchester.
The sites feature IRS-certified volunteers who prepare tax returns for those whose income is under $64,000. Returns can be filed electronically from the tax preparation site.
The volunteers are trained to help identify those filers who qualify for tax credits, including the Earned Income Tax Credit Those who qualify for the EITC can receive up to $6,318 this year, depending on their filing status and the number of qualifying children.
Many sites are available on a walk-in basis; others are by appointment only.
A complete list of free tax preparation sites located throughout the State of NH is available on-line at 211nh.org or by calling 2-1-1. The 2-1-1 Information & Referral specialist can assist in setting up appointments for those who call.Additional information can be found at the following links:
