For the 12th consecutive year, Goodwill Hawaiʻi is partnering with the Internal Revenue Service and Aloha United Way to provide free tax preparation assistance to low income families in Hawaiʻi.

Beginning today, Feb. 2, 2016, seven clinics will open across the state. Individuals and families who earned $54,000 or less in 2015 and do not own a home or business are eligible for the service.

The service is available through April 2nd, with a clinic offered in Kahului at the Goodwill Maui Office on Alamaha Street.

Last season, Goodwill Hawaii assisted more than 1,300 households with tax filing, with the average household helped receiving a tax refund of $2,175.

Interested individuals are encouraged to schedule an appointment to meet with a tax preparer by visiting or calling (808) 836-0313. Walk-ins will also be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Only one individual or household will be served per appointment.
