Free Tax Preparation

Get the Refund You Earned

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program offers free tax preparation to low- to moderate-income (generally $70,000 and below) people who cannot prepare their own tax returns. Certified volunteers receive training to prepare basic tax returns in communities across the county.

Trained community volunteers may help with special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. Check out the video to the right for more information about the Earned Income Tax Credit and to see if you qualify!
