Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) ProgramVITA Program logo
 
The VITA program provides free tax preparation to low- and moderate-income taxpayers, the elderly, and those with disabilities. 

Did you make less than $53,000 in 2014?  
Our goal is to assist families and individuals making $53,000 or less per year who cannot afford to pay for tax preparation. Also, if you have suffered a job loss or other financial hardship, the program is flexible and may be able to accommodate you. 

VITA sites can prepare most basic federal and state returns utilizing the1040 and 1040EZ forms, and related
schedules such as A, B, & C-EZ. 

Tax Preparation Sites:

 All sites are open on a first come, first served walk-in basis.
