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.
