Need help filing taxes? Community Action Duluth may be able to help

Community Action Duluth offers free tax assistance for those who qualify

If you make under $64,000 a year and live in Duluth, Community Action Duluth can help you file taxes.

Filing taxes can be confusing, but Community Action Duluth is here to help. Anyone who makes under $64,000 a year can use the organization’s free tax return assistance. 

“We review the information that you give us, and we take a look at what can be done and we see if anything can be added because there’s a lot that could be missing,” explained Tax Site Volunteer Coordinator Andre Nelson.

Once you receive all of your tax forms, Community Action Duluth can help virtually or in-person.

“Every dollar matters. So even if you don’t think you’re going to be getting a huge return, you might as well come in and check just because it’s the taxpayer’s money. It’s the people’s money,” said Tax Site Coordinator Sasha Choporov. “It’s not a bonus, and if that money is not claimed, it just goes back right to the IRS hands.”

This tax season, from January 29 to April 18th, Community Action Duluth will have walk-in clinics at the following days and times:

  • Mondays: 4:30 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Tuesdays: 4:30 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Thursdays: 4:30 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Sundays: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

“I have heard things about how pleasant it was and how resourceful it was and how easy to come in and get your taxes done,” said Tax Site Program Manager Takeesha Coon. “It’s very helpful for some people in the community.”

There will also be appointments available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to noon. 

“We want to not only offer tax preparation to low to moderate income individuals in the community, but we also want to leave them with something so that they have so that they’re better equipped for the upcoming year and throughout the rest of their lives, because taxes are a part of everyone’s life every single day,” said Choporov.
