The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program offers free tax help to people who generally make $55,000 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.
*Those earning less than $66,000 can file online 100% free using myfreetaxes.com
