The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program offers free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing as well as information about special tax credits for which you may qualify such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. Central Floridians have saved millions of dollars having their taxes prepared at tax free locations. VITA sites are located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls and other convenient locations. To find one near you, visit www.hfuw.org or call 2-1-1.
If you prefer to file your taxes online, visit www.MyFreeTaxes.com to file for free online. Assistance is available through phone, chat or email. The service is free for income up to $64,000.
