Due to COVID-19 the deadline for filing taxes was extended to July 15. If you still need to file your taxes, Foundation Communities’ free online tax prep services are available for anyone who needs it. With the income tax filing deadline right around the corner, Austinites who need to file their tax return still have time to get help from our IRS-certified tax preparers. We offer absolutely free tax preparation with no fees or deductions from refunds.
Are you expecting a refund? If so, get in touch with us to file your tax return as soon as possible. Your refund can be deposited directly into your bank account. Our IRS-certified tax preparers are experienced at finding every tax credit you qualify for to get the maximum refund available. We file almost all returns electronically so you can get your refund quickly.
Foundation Communities has helped more than 250,000 Central Texans file their taxes since 2006. In March we closed our in-person tax assistance centers due to COVID-19, but re-launched our services online in April. Our IRS-certified tax preparers now work from home and support tax clients online and through phone appointments. Read our interview with tax preparer Johnny LeBlanc to hear what socially distanced tax preparation looks like (hint: it’s basically the same, just at a safe distance).
Our free tax prep website is open 24/7, offering plenty of flexibility for those who need help with their taxes. To get started, visit https://bit.ly/GetYourRefundAustin at a convenient time and use our online questionnaire to enter your tax and household information. After you’ve uploaded your tax documents and finished the questionnaire, a tax preparer will review your information and schedule a phone appointment to go over it with you. We also have online tax prep available in Spanish here: https://www.getyourrefund.org/?new_locale=es&s=FC.
We’re offering online tax prep services through the July 15 deadline, but we encourage you to get started right away to make sure we have time to review and file your return by the deadline. Online tax preparers are available Monday – Saturday. Questions? Email us at [email protected] or call 512-610-7374 and leave a message so that staff can return your call.
