Boston Tax Help Coalition

A group of nonprofits, businesses, and community organizations that advance the economic independence of working individuals and families.

The Boston Tax Help Coalition’s mission is to broaden pathways from poverty to financial empowerment. It does this by maximizing the impact of tax credits through:

  • free tax preparation,
  • financial education, and
  • economic stability opportunities.

Accommodations for Taxpayers

Multilingual tax services

The Boston Tax Help Coalition provides free tax preparation in several languages to reach the significant number of Boston immigrants eligible for the service. The Coalition also does outreach to Boston’s immigrant communities and provides resources in multiple languages. Tax preparation assistance is available in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, Cape Verdean Creole, Portuguese, French, Vietnamese, Mandarin, and Cantonese. See the list of tax sites for information on locations that offer multilingual services. 

Taxpayers with Disabilities

The Boston Tax Help Coalition has been a national leader in the integration of free tax preparation with the needs of the disability community since 2005. At that time, the Coalition joined with the National Disability Institute (NDI) to expand tax and asset building services to taxpayers with disabilities. It was through this partnership that the Coalition’s "Disability Initiative" was born. This effort has, as its goal, an integrated and inclusive outreach, service delivery and leadership development strategy for taxpayers with disabilities and their advocates throughout the Boston campaign. As of 2017, 13.6% of our taxpayers report a disability. But, based on the national estimates, many more taxpayers with disabilities do not know about these opportunities, are misinformed, and are not accessing these services.
