Free Tax Assistance for Beaverton Residents
In partnership with CASH Oregon and AARP Tax Aide, the City of Beaverton is providing free tax preparation and filing assistance from Feb. 1 to Apr. 17 at the Beaverton Activities Center (12500 SW Allen Blvd). This is a free, walk-in service; no appointments. The city provided tax assistance to 1,755 people last year through this partnership. Assistance will be offered in multiple languages.
Trained volunteers help Beaverton families and individuals to prepare and file their taxes, claiming the tax credits that they are eligible for. The program brings hard-earned money back to the Beaverton community. On average:
- The Earned Income Tax Credit adds $2,400 to working families’ refunds. It can mean an additional $510 for people without children and up to $6,318 for those with three or more qualifying children. It is money you can save or use to pay off bills, buy that car to get to work, or make a down payment on a home.
- 1 in 4 people in Oregon don’t claim the Earned Income Tax Credit, missing out on hundreds or thousands of dollars.
- The tax assistance program brings $2.5 million in tax refunds back into Beaverton’s economy.
