Free Tax Prep Assistance

Hillsborough County Extension will be offering free tax prep assistance to Hillsborough County residents. At the current time we are offering virtual appointments. We are working to provide in-person options in the future. Remote assistance will be available to residents via telephone or web meeting.

Appointments for the free service are required.

During the meeting, tax filers will be given access to tax filing software and receive assistance from IRS trained staff and volunteers.

They can help process returns that include income reported on forms W-2, 1099-NEC, 1099-R, 1099–SSA, 1099-INT, 1099-DIV, 1099-B, 1099-C, and 1099-G. They can also help with credits such as the Earned Income Credit, Child Tax Credit, education credits, Saver’s Credit, and Premium Tax Credit. They are not able to provide tax guidance on rental income, the energy efficient home credit, or depreciation.

Appointments must be made in advance. For more information, contact Denise Kantak, 813-744-5519 ext. 54141 or

This service will be available starting February 2nd and ending on April 8th.
