VITA: The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program

Free Tax Preparation at the Library
(and at other convenient sites!)

VITA Volunteers are trained, IRS-Certified Tax Specialists who help low and moderate income households making under $52,000 a year prepare and file their taxes electronically, free of charge.  Direct deposit is a free option and it can take as little as two weeks in most cases to receive a refund. 
Call 2-1-1 to make an appointment to get your taxes prepared for free.

VITA volunteers help people who do not have extra-complicated tax returns.  Complicated tax returns such as those for married-filing-separate, people with rental income, some (but not all) self-employed people, military personnel, people in bankruptcy or foreclosure, and other complications, are not covered by the VITA program.  Call 2-1-1 if you need to check whether you qualify.
The VITA Program is brought to Humboldt and Del Norte County residents by generous support from the United Way of the Wine Country, the IRS, the County of Humboldt, the McLean Foundation and 30 community partners in the Humboldt and Del Norte areas.
Call 2-1-1  to schedule your VITA appointment.
