VITA: Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

The VITA Program offers FREE tax preparation and filing services to households who make $66,000 or less and need assistance preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals in local communities. Taxpayers will also learn about tax credits for which they may qualify. Please note that if your tax return contains any items that are out of scope for our program, we are unable to prepare your tax return.

There are no more available appointments in 2020.
