The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation and filing to low- and moderate income individuals, families, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide basic federal, state and local income tax return preparation with electronic filing for free to qualified individuals.
COVID-19 Outbreak Update
To assist the nationwide, state and local efforts to mitigate exposure to COVID-19, SpiriTrust Lutheran has decided to suspend VITA operations at their Roosevelt Ave and United Way sites until further notice. If you have a scheduled appointment, please expect a call from the VITA program. If you are unable to wait until formal guidance supports resume operations, it is recommended to use www.myfreetaxes.com or seek the assistance of a paid preparer.
If you have questions, please direct them to VITA at 717-854-2244.
