Aloha!

Our sites are CLOSED for the season

We will re-open in February 2016 to prepare tax year 2015 returns.

Beware telephone and e-mail tax scams!

The IRS will NOT initially contact you by phone or e-mail - only by U.S. Postal mail.  Never respond or provide information to requests originating by phone or e-mail.  See this IRS article concerning current phone scams:

E-File your own return FREE!

If your earned income and adjusted gross income is $60,000 or less for 2014, you qualify to use IRS Free File to file your federal return only at no cost or MyFreeTaxes to e-file both your federal and state returns at no cost to you.  Go to this link for IRS Free File or this link for MyFreeTaxes.  You can e-file until October 15, 2015.

Looking for your refund?

Federal: Click here to access the IRS' Where's My Refund tool or call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. 

Hawaii:  Click here to access the Hawaii refund locator page or call the state Department of Taxation at 808-587-4242 or 1-800-222-3229.  Note that the State Department of Taxation has announced that it could take 10 to 14 weeks to receive your state tax refund.

In both cases, you will need some information from your return, so be sure to have it handy when going online or calling.


See us in action!

Check out this video of our volunteers at the Liliha Library during February 2013.


Volunteer with us in 2016 (Tax Year 2015)!

We help over 15,000 taxpayers each year throughout the state of Hawaii, but we can't do it without our volunteers.  We have a variety of positions available, some of which require no tax knowledge at all.  If you are interested in serving Hawaii's kupuna and low-to-moderate income families and individuals, click here for information about our volunteer opportunities and to contact us about volunteering.  Individuals with computer skills (basic to advanced) are particularly needed, as all of our sites use computers and tax preparation software.  Please submit a volunteer application online by Nov 10, 2015 so we can ensure your training needs are met.
