Cortland VITA is excited to announce a new partnership with another volunteer group, Code for America. Code for America is a volunteer group of talented technicians and engineers who have developed a secure interface that we can use to prepare your taxes.

Here's how it works:

  • Complete the questionnaire and upload documents (by taking pictures with your phone)
  • Your volunteer preparer and reviewer will contact you.
  • Once your completed return has been reviewed, you will be asked to take a look and be able to ask any questions you'd like.
  • Once you have approved your return, we will efile for free.

"This was so easy and super user friendly. The questions were clear and easy to understand exactly what I needed to do. I would definitely do this again," said a Cortland taxpayer that used this today.

"Try it with your phone! It's so easy, it makes posting to facebook look hard," says Charlie.
