Coulee Region Tax Assistance

Due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns, Coulee Region Tax Assistance had to cancel its final two tax-filing events. The Tax Filing Deadline has been extended to July 15, 2020.

If you are comfortable self-filing your taxes, for “simple returns” we’d recommend using http://MyFreeTaxes.com, which offers free filing for up to three state returns and federal returns. 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 at https://www.irs.gov/filing/free-file-do-your-federal-taxes-for-free.

Check back for updates. If we are able to secure partnerships with any local income tax filing services, we will post that information here.
