The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $56,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.
Many in-person tax preparation sites, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and AARP Tax-Aide, have made the difficult decision to close their sites to protect the public and their volunteers from COVID-19. However, free IRS-sponsored online resources are available and we need your help to bring this important information to your community.
IRS Free File provides free tax preparation and e-filing online for those making $69,000 or less in 2019. Free File is a great alternative to in-person tax assistance.
Our process has changed to a walk-in location and will no longer be accepting appointments. Clients will meet with a preparer to drop off their tax return information and will be contacted once their returns have been completed which should take between 1-2 weeks (based on site capacity).
Our services will be offered from February 10 – April 9, 2020 (weather permitting; please see below). Our office will be closed on February 26 and resume on February from 12 – 4 p.m.
If you do not think you qualify for the VITA or Free File programs, you can also search for paid tax preparers through the IRS directory to assist you with your return.
For more information about the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), visit the IRS VITA website. You can also consider preparing your own tax return through the IRS Free File Program delivered by Turbo Tax. If you wish to do so, see if you qualify at the Free File Intuit website. If you do not, the IRS has other Free File providers on its website you can see if you can qualify for, or you can proceed to see about getting your return done through our VITA site.
