The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides IRS-certified volunteers who prepare current tax year and past year returns for low-and moderate-income taxpayers during the tax filing season (typically January 2 – April 15). The VITA program offers free basic tax filing services and   e-filing. Volunteers can inform taxpayers about tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit and the American Opportunity Tax Credit. Select volunteers are allowed to provide expanded tax preparation, such as Schedule A, Schedule B, Schedule C, and Schedule D.

Free income tax preparation is offered by appointment at the Market Street Facility in Piketon. For more information, contact us at 740-289-2371.
