People Incorporated will be hosting a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program site, in partnership with the United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley. VITA offers free tax assistance to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities 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.
This is an opportunity for individuals and families to save an average of $275 in tax preparation fees by using our services. In addition to saving fees,
taxpayers will be working with certified IRS volunteers who will make sure that families receive the maximum tax refund to which they are entitled and help determine if they are eligible for the earned income tax credit (EITC) or other tax credit programs.
Free tax preparation will be available by appointment February 2nd- April 13th, 2017 at People Inc.'s office, 135 South Main Street, Woodstock, VA. To participate, please call 540-459-9096 for an appointment and for information on what you will need in order to receive services.
Additional tax preparer volunteers are still needed. To become a volunteer, no prior tax experience is necessary. Training will be provided. Please call People Inc. at (540) 459-9096 for additional information.
