Free tax assistance

There are two popular, and free, programs recommended by IRS certified volunteers.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) offers free, basic tax help to people who generally make $52,000 or less, persons with disabilities, the elderly and those who speak limited English.

Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) offers free tax help for all taxpayers, particularly those who are 60 years of age and older. Volunteers are often retirees who specialize in questions about pensions and retirement-related issues.
