Free Tax Preparation Assistance

We can help tax season go smoothly. 

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation services to taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $56,000 or less. IRS-certified volunteers provide free federal and state tax return preparation to qualified persons. Annually the program runs from the beginning of February to April 15.
