The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is not a new tax credit but it has changed for 2021—more money is available and 90% of those eligible will automatically receive advance payments.
If you worked in 2020 and earned $57,000 or less, we invite you to come to one of our neighborhood tax preparation sites to have your taxes prepared and filed for free…
There are free resources available to file your taxes from home, or with scheduled drop-off assistance, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Boston Tax Help Coalition offers free tax preparation and filing in 15 neighborhoods at 30+ different locations. Some sites also offer financial guide check-ups. Find a tax site near you…

As a lifelong resident of Roxbury, I have always been deeply committed to giving back to my community. Volunteering at the Roxbury Resource Center is extremely rewarding. The smiles and thank yous from the taxpayers are priceless! Seeing taxpayers return year after year is not only an indication of the exemplary service provided at the RRC but also of the impact that the free tax prep has in the community.
As a Tax Preparer in the program, I get to enjoy the relationship with the taxpayers who value the service provided, with the volunteers who are helpful people of goodwill, and with everybody I meet through the program. Also, there is a rare political consensus that the EITC program is important for social justice. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be a volunteer.
