Free Tax Prep: VITA

We are excited to announce that tax preparation will be back for 2021!

This year we will not be scheduling any appointment times but will be providing taxes on a first come, first served basis.

You can expect the same great accuracy, service, and quality that you have experienced in the past. 

Your safety is our top priority so we will ask that everyone wear a mask and be socially distant the entire time. Hand sanitizer will be provided. 

Starting on January 30, tax preparation will be available:
Thursday mornings: 9AM-11AM
Thursday evenings: 6PM-8PM
Saturday mornings: 9AM-11AM

Please Note: There are a limited number of appointments available each day (first come, first served) based on the number of volunteer tax preparers. 

Directions

  • To maintain safety we will not be entering the Healing Center through the main entrance.
  • Follow the signs to parking on the opposite side of the Healing Center building.
  • Look for the entrance to the Arena.


Can I shop for services that day? You will most likely not be able to shop for services the same day you come for your tax return preparation.

Please remember we can only complete tax returns for those whose income is below $65,000.
