Tax Preparation Assistance
Posted on 02/27/2019
It’s that time of year when many are working on filing their state and federal taxes.

Preparing your taxes can be a daunting task at times, but it’s one that not everyone needs to face alone. Here are two programs available to New Hope residents:

Prepare + Prosper is offering free tax preparation and e-file services to individuals with an annual income of $35,000 or less, families with an income of $55,000 or less, or self-employed individuals making $55,000 or less.

Services at Prepare + Prosper are provided by a team of 500+ IRS-certified volunteers. All tax returns are doubled checked for accuracy to make sure they’re getting you the maximum refund. They assist with federal and Minnesota returns, including property tax refunds for renters and homeowners.

For additional Prepare + Prosper details, site locations, or to schedule a tax assistance appointment, call 651.287.0187 or visit prepareandprosper.org. Please allow 2-4 hours to have your taxes completed.
