District 5, situated within the Texas 3 Area, boasts a team of 100 dedicated volunteers who collectively handle almost 4000 tax returns annually. We operate from 9 sites strategically positioned across the region. While the majority of our tax clients are low-income seniors, we also extend our tax services to young people whether they are single or part of a family.
Prior Year Returns
You can file a tax return a far back as you want. However, you can only claim a tax refund or tax credit within 3 years of original filing date (Tax Years 2020, 2021 and 2022). If we have certified counselors available, we can assist you with prior-year returns.
We can electronically file tax returns, both original and amended for 2021 and 2022. Returns prior to 2021 must be mailed to the IRS.
If we prepared your prior tax returns, we will have copies for 2020, 2021 and 2022.
The IRS recommends keeping copies of your tax returns and supporting documents for at least three years from the date you filed your original return
