Income Tax Prep Assistance

In order to serve our community during this extended tax season, we added additional clinics to our Madison Home Office and our Fitchburg Career Center. Please Note: At this time all appointments are filled. Walk-ins cannot be accepted.

If you already have an appointment, we are providing Same-Day Valet service. This includes meeting briefly with a volunteer to drop off your tax paperwork and returning the same day after your return has been completed.  We anticipate that returns can be completed in about 1 hour. We will call you as soon as your return is ready for pick-up and review with a tax preparer.

In order to serve you, the included paperwork needs to be completed and brought with you to your appointment.  Please let us know if you are unable to print and need us to mail you the documents.

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or are unable to attend your appointment please cancel by calling 608-246-3140 ext. 1155 or email vita@goodwillscwi.org.

 

Of Note: As you may have heard, there will be payments of up to $1,200 ($2,400 for joint filers) with an additional $500 per qualifying child. The majority of recipients will have to do nothing to receive their payments. For those who have not filed tax returns recently or did not have direct deposits IRS is instituting processes.
