Filing season is open for 2022!

In response to the current pandemic, we are requiring all taxpayers show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.  In addition, everyone will wear a mask covering their nose and mouth at all times.  Can't wear a mask?  Check out our Socially Distanced Tax Preparation Tab.  

  • Was your 2021 income less than $57,000?

If you meet either of these qualifications, IRS Certified tax preparers in the VITA program will prepare your taxes for free!
