The Financial Check-Up is a 20 minute credit counseling session where a trained volunteer pulls your credit report, reviews it with you, and you work together to create a credit building action plan.


The Financial Check-Up is offered as part of free tax preparation services through our partner, the Boston Tax Help Coalition. Sometimes, one of our partners will host an event to offer the Financial Check-Up on its own, separate from tax preparation services. When such events are scheduled, they will be shared on our events calendar here.


Tax preparation services run from January through the filing deadline in April,  and the full list of tax sites can be found here. The following is a list of the 15 tax sites in Boston that are offering the Financial Check-Up in 2019:
