Coulee Region Tax Assistance program will be canceling both events that were scheduled for March 21 and April 4 due to COVID-19 and the need to implement social distancing. The program is exploring options to potentially offer future events in the summer before the tax deadline which we have been told is likely to be pushed back 90-days. If you are comfortable self-filing your taxes, for “simple returns” we’d recommend using http://MyFreeTaxes.com which offers free file for up to three state returns and federal returns. Simple tax returns are defined on their website. You can click to it from the homepage. The software does not support returns needing to report self-employment income (schedule C), capital gains or losses (schedule D), or supplemental income like income from rentals (schedule E). The IRS website also offers free filing information. (Go to https://www.irs.gov/filing/free-file-do-your-federal-taxes-for-free.) We are so sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. We will be serving the community next tax season if not before. All of our event information will be posted at www.westerntc.edu/events.
Additionally, Western’s Public Safety Division offers a number of trainings and non-credit classes.
