The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers FREE TAX HELP (both federal and state) for people who generally make $57,000 or less for the 2020 tax year, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in prepairing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electonic filing to qualified individuals.
Make an appointment to have our IRS-certified volunteers assist you with tax credits like Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and the Recovery Rebate Credit as well as ACA Marketplace reconciliation (healthcare). For information regarding what type of tax returns we can prepare and what documents to bring, click here to go to IRS-Publication 3676-A.
A second option to file taxes, if you have adjusted gross income of $66,000 or less, is to visit www.myfreetaxes.com to prepare your federal and state taxes for free! You will be guided through the whole process.
