Tax Assistance

The Financial Education Center offers free tax preparation at the Richard Dilley Tax Center, a partnership with City of Madison, IRS and the WI Department of Revenue, every year from late January through April 15th.  In addition, we provide the most current information regarding tax credits you might qualify for and resources that will help you answer all of your tax questions.


New COVID 19 Procedures

To limit in-person interaction, we are operating on a drop-off format BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  This brief appointment consists of arriving at your scheduled time with your paperwork prepared, meeting briefly with an intake interviewer who will check your identification, make copies of your social security cards, ask a few screening questions regarding your return and take your tax documents.  You will then leave the building while your return is completed by a certified volunteer tax preparer.  You are expected to return 90 minutes later for the review and pick up of your completed return and to pick up your documents. Please keep this in mind when you are making your appointment to allow time to complete the entire process.
