Westminster pro bono tax clinic

February 9, 2017

The Westminster Pro Bono Tax Clinic offers free tax preparation and financial advocacy services to low- to moderate-income families and small businesses filing schedule C from January 30–April 18, 2017. The clinic operates out of the Salt Lake County Government Center during tax season and on-site at Westminster the rest of the year. Taxpayers can sign up for services by making an appointment, walk-in or using the drop-off service.

All submitted forms are prepared by Westminster's Pro Bono Tax Clinic students, who are IRS-certified with advanced accounting education. The clinic is directed by Emily Rains, tax attorney and Westminster assistant professor of accounting.

In addition to free preparation of federal and multi-state taxes, the clinic has partnered with AAA-Credit Foundation, Department of Workforce Services, Salt Lake County Treasurer, Salt Lake City Corporation and the Community Development Corporation of Utah to process applications and schedule appointments. Spanish-speaking tax preparers are also available.
