VITA Tax Program Now Closed

The VITA Free Tax Program is now closed until July 15th, and we will not be accepting any new returns until after that deadline. We will provide limited service again after July 15th until August 20th for those who:

 

-Have past year returns that need to be filed

-Recieve a letter from the IRS

-Need to amend their return

 

After August 20th we will only work with existing clients who filed a return through us this (2019) tax season, and received a letter from the IRS, or need to amend their return. These appointments will be available on a limited basis.
