Tax Clinic We have a team of student volunteers ready to prepare your tax return for you

Get your taxes done – stress-free, wherever you are! 

High school taught us many things – how to dissect a frog and the Pythagorean Theorem, but chances are, you still can’t do your taxes. Let us do them for you!
We have partnered with White Picket Fence Taxation & Accounting Services (WPF) to offer our FREE annual tax clinic. So, sit back, relax, and let WPF and our team of student volunteers prepare your tax return for you.
