Family Services


With VITA sites in Chatham, Danville, Caswell County, and Altavista; we offer free federal and state tax filing assistance that keeps your money in your pocket.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers FREE TAX HELP (both federal and state) to people who generally make $56,000 or less for the 2019 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.

In addition if you have adjusted gross income of $66,000 or less, visit to prepare your Federal and State taxes for free; and no fee for e-file!

Have our IRS-certified volunteers assist you with tax credits like Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Marketplace (health care) reconciliation, and Education Credits.

We also assist taxpayers with completion of their W-4 from (the withholding form for your employer).  We can recommend classes to help you develop a personal budget that includes saving for the future.  Did you know there is an opportunity for a "savers credit" when you file your federa income tax return?

Let us help us for FREE and stay away from those predatory lenders and loans geared toward the vulnerable population.

IRS VITA/TCE return preparation sites are operated by certified volunteers.  For further information regarding what types of tax filing we will prepare, what we will not prepare, and what to bring can be found at IRS-Publication 3676-B.  

The 2019 Tax season is fast approaching. Click here for a list of items to bring with you to the VITA Site to ensure your tax return is prepared efficiently.
