Help with Federal Taxes
If your Adjusted Gross Income is $57,000 or less, you can save money by using the IRS’s Free File program. Visit http://www.freefile.irs.gov to learn more.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and dedicated volunteers provide several tax preparation resources that help low income individuals and seniors meet their tax filing requirements.
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
The VITA Program generally offers free tax help to people who make $51,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation to qualified individuals in local communities. They can inform taxpayers about special tax credits for which they may qualify such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations. Most locations also offer free electronic filing.
- Find a VITA site near you or call 1-800-906-9887.
Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE)
The TCE Program offers free tax help for all with priority assistance to people who are 60 years of age and older, specializing in questions about pensions and retirement issues unique to seniors. IRS-certified volunteers who provide tax counseling are often retired individuals associated with non-profit organizations that receive grants from the IRS.
