– Goodwill Hawaii to offer free tax filing services –

For the 13th straight year, Goodwill Hawaii is partnering with the Internal Revenue Service and Aloha United Way to provide free tax preparation assistance to eligible tax filers — individuals or families who earned $54,000 or less in 2016 and do not own a home or business.

Starting Feb. 1 and ending on April 1, Goodwill Hawaii will open seven tax clinics statewide. The Maui location will be at the Goodwill Maui Office, 250 Alamaha St., Suite N-16A, in Kahului. Hours of operation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursdays, as well as 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month until April 8.

Last season, Goodwill Hawaii helped more than 1,700 households file their federal and state tax returns, resulting in over $3 million in tax refunds and credits. On average, each household serviced by Goodwill received a tax refund of $2,000.

Interested parties can schedule an appointment to meet with a tax preparer by visiting www.higoodwill.org or calling 836-0313. Walk-ins will also be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Only one individual or household will be served per appointment.
