United Way Announces Cancellation of Tax Appointments


United Way of Pickens County announced Monday that all free tax preparation appointments previously scheduled through March 31, 2020 have been cancelled. Several factors related to the COVID-19 coronavirus led to this decision, including the closure of the Pickens County Library system through March 31. 

Individuals with March tax appointments have been contacted by phone to let them know of the cancellation and have been asked to check the United Way of Pickens County website after April 1 to learn if appointments will resume, or if additional delays are expected.

There are two online tax preparation resources which tax payers may consider during this delay.

MyFreeTaxes.com  is a partnership between United Way and H&R Block which allows anyone with a simple return to file for free.

The IRS lists several other free federal tax filing options on their website as well.
