CASA's Free Tax Prep Service | Pennsylvania

CASA prepares income taxes for free in York, Lancaster, and on a limited basis Chester and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Due to the COVID pandemic, in order to keep safe taxpayers and our volunteers, CASA will do most of our service with limited in-person activity and with scheduled appointments. Please arrive on-time and with all proper materials to complete your return. Taxpayers will drop-off documents at the office and get copies of completed tax forms.
