VITA (VOLUNTEER INCOME TAX ASSISTANCE)
Trained volunteers at Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites offer free tax filing assistance from mid-January through mid-April. Dates and times vary by site. Tax preparation assistance is available for people with annual incomes at or below $60,000, regardless of household size. Anyone, regardless of age, can use a VITA site for assistance. VITA volunteers help taxpayers prepare basic federal and Connecticut state tax forms, but do not assist with out-of-state tax forms.
