Need to get your taxes done without throwing more money into the dark abyss? Our local Goodwill organization is here to help!

Tax time is always very strange for me, you have to figure out how much you're over or underpaid the government. Paying and owing tax expeerts, as well as the government, would not be an ideal situation. I know a lot of families (locally) that would qualify for this free tax preparation offered by Goodwill.

That way you wouldn't have to pay to get the government to give you back your own money, if your not comfortable filling out your own tax return. I have never been to proud to ask for help, and I have done my taxes myself in the past, but it's really a daunting task.
