Westminster Tax Clinic

The Westminster Tax Clinic offers free tax preparation and financial advocacy services to low- to moderate-income individuals, persons with disabilities, the elderly, members of military services, veterans, members of Native American tribes, and limited English proficiency taxpayers.


At this time, the Westminster Tax Clinic does not anticipate allowing any walk-ins, given the current COVID-19 situation. However, this may change, so please contact the clinic directly if you have any questions at 801.210.8291.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Protocols

Given the current COVID-19 situation, Westminster Tax Clinic is planning to modify the operations plans for the upcoming tax year. This is what we have in place for the spring of 2023:

  • All taxpayers will be served on an appointment basis only. As of right now, the clinic does not anticipate allowing any walk-ins.
  • We will be performing wellness checks of all the volunteers and clients, including contactless temperature being taken.
  • Each tax station will be equipped with a plexiglass protective shield and sanitizing supplies.
  • All taxpayers and volunteers are required to wear a mask at all times. If you have a medical issue that prevents you from wearing a mask, you will be required to wear a face shield. Please bring your mask or face shield with you to your appointment as the Tax Clinic will not be able to provide you with one. 
  • We are implementing rigorous cleaning protocols and sanitizing the commonly touched surfaces, including but not limited to pens, clipboards, desks, etc.

Although this year will be much different, the clinic staff are grateful for the opportunity to do what they can to help serve the community. At any point, the Tax Clinic may modify its operations to accommodate for any new CDC and local guidelines.
