Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program
Sites are now open! 

VITA Program logoThe VITA program is possible because of dedicated community volunteers who provide free tax preparation to low- and moderate-income taxpayers, the elderly, and those with disabilities.

Did you make less than $52,000 in 2013?  Our goal is to assist citizens who cannot afford to pay for tax preparation.  The target population is families and individuals making $52,000 or less per year. 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. 

What to bring with you:
  • Required Tax Documents for all people on the return (if applicable) for 2013:
  • Picture Identification
  • Social Security cards, IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) cards, or ITIN letter
  • Proof of all income, including W-2, 1099, and any earnings statements
  • Unemployment information
  • Alimony information
  • Interest or dividend statements
  • Copy of last year’s tax return
  • Named, address, tax ID number, and amount paid for child care
  • Student tuition or loan information
  • Social Security, pension and IRA statements
  • Statements of medical expenses
  • Record of gifts to charities or churches
  • Any record of payment made to IRS (i.e., quarterly payments)
  • Bank account information including routing number (to use direct deposit)
  • Any envelopes received in the mail with “Important Tax Information Enclosed” on the envelope
