Filing your taxes every year is important to ensure you are receiving all the government benefits and subsidies you are eligible for. Even if you are not employed or do not have income, you still need to file your taxes.

Our service is free and confidential.

Make Tax Time Pay continues to be a volunteer-run tax preparation service.

All volunteers are trained on filing processes and with the support of our staff can assist you with any questions that you may have.
