Through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, IRS-certified volunteers prepare taxes and specifically look for tax credits the household may be eligible for, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit (CTC), Circuit Breaker Tax Credit, and others. Utilizing the free tax preparation services allows families to retain their full refund, avoiding typical preparation fees which can often cost hundreds of dollars.
VITA has gone virtual! Appointments won’t be needed because all preparation will be happening virtually. Please click on the option below which best describes your situation.
Option 1: (Your income is above $57,000 and/or you are comfortable preparing own return with access to free software.)
Option 2: (Your income must be below $57,000 to be eligible.)
Option 3: (Your income must be below $57,000 to be eligible.)
If you don’t have a smartphone or computer to upload documents yourself, you can begin the process without an appointment by bringing your paperwork to WCAC’s VITA office, located at 484 Main Street, Suite 202 ONLY during the following times beginning Monday, February 8th. (Please note we will be closed on Monday, February 15th for President’s Day).:
- Mondays 5:00-7:00PM
- Wednesdays 3:00-7:00PM,
- Fridays 9:00AM-1:00PM
- Saturdays 9:00AM-Noon
We have been lucky to get a lot of new volunteers this season and are hoping we can keep up with demand. Please be patient and understand it is always very busy the first few weeks and it evens out to a steadier pace through April 15th. Please email with any additional questions.
