Get Free Tax Filing Assistance and Keep More of Your Income
During tax preparation time, many community action agencies in Vermont offer free tax filing assistance through the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Read on to find a free tax assistance location near you.
Tax Prep from VITA
If you earned $54,000 or less in 2017, have a disability, or have limited English, you may be able to get free tax filing assistance from the VITA program. A trained volunteer will help you prepare and file your tax return electronically. They will also tell you about available tax credits that can reduce your taxes and let you keep more of your income.
Even if you think you earned too little to file a return you might be able to use the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to get money back on withheld taxes. It’s worthwhile finding out from a VITA volunteer!
