Virtual VITA

The Community Action Agency's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is currently using a virtual tax preparation model during the COVID-19 emergency.  Virtual VITA allows residents to use an online platform to securely upload their tax documents and have their taxes prepared for free by a certified tax preparer.  No in-person contact is required, allowing for the health and safety of staff and community members to be maintained.

NEW!  Now scheduling virtual appointments for 2020 taxes.
