    Goodwill Provides Free Tax Preparation Assistance 2017

    -- Tax Clinics Opening Statewide Beginning Feb. 1 --

    Honolulu, Hawaii --

    Goodwill Hawaii has received a grant from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) in support of its Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day event on Friday, Jan. 27 from 10 am to 3 pm at the Goodwill Beretania Store at 1075 S. Beretania St. The event will provide opportunities for low-income individuals and families to enhance their knowledge of available tax credits and access free financial education from qualified experts. Attendees may also sign up to receive free tax filing assistance at one of Goodwill's tax filing clinics opening at the beginning of February.

    "Goodwill Hawaii is honored to be the recipient of this grant, which will support our continued efforts to help low-income families become self-sufficient," said Katy Chen, chief administrative officer of Goodwill Hawaii. "The Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day event is a great way to help the community to prepare for and understand all of the benefits that they can claim by filing taxes."

    For the 13th year in a row, Goodwill Hawaii is partnering with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Aloha United Way to provide FREE tax preparation assistance to eligible tax filers -- individuals or families who earned $54,000 or less in 2016 and DO NOT own a home or business.

    Starting Feb. 1 and ending on April 1, Goodwill Hawaii will open seven tax clinics statewide ­-- including three on Oahu in Honolulu, Kapolei and Windward Oahu, two on the Big Island in Hilo and Kona, one in Kahului, Maui and one in Lihue, Kauai. A list of locations and their hours of operations can be found below.

    Last season, Goodwill Hawaii assisted more than 1,700 households to file their Federal and Hawaii State tax returns who received over $3 million in tax refunds and credits. On average, each household serviced by Goodwill received a tax refund of $2,000.

    Interested parties are encouraged to schedule an appointment to meet with a tax preparer by visiting or calling 836-0313. Walk-ins will also be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Only one individual or household will be served per appointment.

Over 10,000 Hawaii residents each year have benefitted from Goodwill's services, and thousands have found employment in our community. Philosophy For more than 100 years, Goodwill Industries has championed a philosophy of community service through the power of work. In 1902, the founder of this philosophy, Reverend Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist Minister, took burlap bags into Boston's wealthier neighborhoods collecting donations. He invited community residents with disabilities and other disadvantages to help repair and sell the donations and used the revenue made through the sales to pay the workers. This philosophy is evident throughout Hawaii's Goodwill, and in Goodwills throughout the world.
