Free Income Tax Preparation

Southington Community Services, in partnership with Human Resources Agency (HRA) of New Britain, offers free income tax preparation services to income-eligible families and individuals. This program runs annually from mid-February until the beginning of April. You may be eligible for free tax preparation services including e-file and direct deposit.

The appointments will be scheduled on Monday mornings. They will let you know if you meet their income guidelines.
