Volunteer Income Tax Assistance
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
Free Income Tax Assistance:
Trained community volunteers help with special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. In addition to free tax return preparation assistance, we offer free electronic filing (e-filing). Individuals taking advantage of the e-file program receive their refunds in half the time compared to returns filed on paper even faster when tax refunds are deposited directly into one's bank account.
The VITA Program offers free tax help to low-to-moderate income (generally, $49,000 and below) people who cannot prepare their own tax returns. Certified volunteers receive training to help prepare basic tax returns.
January - April of 2011 we prepared over 110 tax returns at our Small Business Incubator.
We also went out into the community and prepared returns for those who could not travel to our site. Next spring, we plan to help even more tax payers get their refunds and save hundreds of dollars in tax prep fees.
