Frequently Asked Questions

More Questions

Why is it free? (What’s the catch?)

When families get free tax help and big-time benefits like the child tax credit, it relieves financial stress and improves children’s health. We want to help our patients and community members stay as healthy as possible -- whether that’s by offering a flu shot or helping families claim the benefits they deserve. There’s no catch -- the service is free. We believe it’s that important.

Should I file taxes?

You can decide whether to file after you see how much you would get back or owe and talk with one of our tax preparers. If you have kids, you’ll probably get money back in the form of a refund or cash benefits. If you owe the government money, filing can protect you from penalties. When we prepare your taxes with you, we won’t submit it until you sign it and tell us to submit it.

What should I bring to my appointment?

We’re the tax experts, but you’re the expert about your family. Here’s a short list of information that will help us maximize your refund and get your taxes done quickly and accurately.

Do you offer other services as well as free tax preparation?

We do! As a family in the BMC Pediatric clinic, you're also eligible for
free child savings accounts -- with $50 already deposited! -- and financial coaching if you want it.
