Income Tax Assistance

Notice:  All VITA and AARP tax preparation services are subject to COVID-19 restrictions.  Check each location for details - some services are either done virtually or drop off only. They may require forms to be completed before your scheduled appointment.

Volunteers in the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) and TCE (Tax Counseling for the Elderly)/AARP programs provide free tax preparation for people with basic tax returns, particularly those with low and limited income, individuals with disabilities, and non-English-speaking and elderly taxpayers.
