The VITA program for free tax preparation is once again available in Cherokee. If you make $57,000 or less, you are eligible to have your taxes done at no cost. Married filing jointly also has a $57,000 cap.
This year, the program is returning to “live return” where taxes are completed in one appointment. The program is not able to do returns with rental income, investment or dividend income or complex business/self-employment income. Please bring your driver’s license, enrollment card and Social Security card with you to the appointment.
The appointments will be done at the EBCI Extension Office at 876 Acquoni Road.
