Free Tax Preparation and Filing!

IRS trained tax preparers offer FREE tax preparation assistance through the VITA program (Volunteer Tax Assistance Program).

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax preparation to people who earn $53,000 or less, persons with disabilities, and the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

For information on your 2015 refund: call 800.829.1040 or visit: www.irs.gov/refunds
– You will need your Social Security Number, Filing Status, and Refund Amount when visiting this site.

Tax preparation for 2015 will be available in January 2016. 

Are you interested in volunteering for VITA?  HRDC will offer an IRS certified training in December, 2015 to train volunteers to prepare taxes in 2016.  If preparing taxes is not among your interests, opportunities are available to greet clients and guide them trough the intake process.  Our volunteers tell us that VITA is a rewarding experience and they feel good about giving back to our community.  For more information, call 406.587.4486 or email vita@thehrdc.org
