Single Stop at A-B Tech is a "One Stop Shop" for students to get connected to resources that will help keep them in school. The idea is to have a place where students can go to get screened for multiple government benefits and local community resources, receive assistance in accessing those benefits and follow-up to make sure they're successful. Benefits and services include things like food assistance, child care assistance, Medicaid, free tax preparation, financial counseling, and legal referrals. All services are free for A-B Tech students.


FREE Tax Prep

From February 11th to April 3rd 2019, free tax preparation appointments will be held on campus. The time slots are 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m., and 1:30 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday. Starting in January 2019, you can contact Support Services  (828-398-7581) for an appointment time. If you are unable to make one of these time slots, the same service is provided at Pack Library every Sat. during the same months from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There are also various locations around Asheville where you can have your taxes prepared for free during February through April.
