VITA program offering free tax prep

by Jan 18, 2013Happenings0 comments

The EBCI Cooperative Extension Center and Tsali Manor are hosting the VITA program that provides free tax services. If you make $57,000 or less, you are eligible to have your taxes done at no cost. For married couples filing jointly, the maximum income is also $57,000. This year will see a return to “live return” where taxes are completed in one appointment. Unfortunately, they will not be able to do returns with rental income, investment or dividend income or complex business/self-employment income.

If you or someone you know is interested in having your taxes done for free, please call to make an appointment.
