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.
