The VITA program offers free tax help to local residents who make $67,000 or less annually. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

For the safety of clients and volunteers, clients will drop off tax information and volunteers will prepare and file returns remotely. Clients will be alerted when their tax return is complete and available for pick up.
