CASH Oregon and Metropolitan Family Services will continue to offer tax preparation and filing services through Thursday, Jul. 15 to Beaverton residents, in response to high need. This service is open to those with a 2020 household income below $57,000.
The IRS extended the tax deadline for this year to Monday, May 17. CASH Oregon will continue to assist taxpayers after the deadline, beginning Thursday, May 27. Services will be offered three times a week (Thursday, Friday and Saturday). The call volume for appointments is very high, so you may experience long waits and a busy signal when trying to make an appointment.
With the help of volunteer tax preparers, CASH Oregon has already been able to help Beaverton residents claim an average refund that is $500 more than during previous years. This is due to the Recovery Rebate Credit where many taxpayers did not receive their stimulus during the year and the only way to receive it is by filing their 2020 tax return. Tax credits such as the Recovery Rebate, Earned Income Tax, or Childcare credit are the most effective tool at lifting Americans out of poverty in the United States.
If you still need assistance with your taxes, call 503-966-7942 to make an appointment, and stop by the Beaverton City Library to pick up a packet of intake paperwork. For more information, visit www.CASHOregon.org.
