The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program offers free tax preparation for individuals and families with low incomes who cannot prepare their own tax returns.
IRS certified staff and community volunteers offer help with special federal and state credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Dependent Care Credit, and the American Opportunity Tuition Credit.
COI offers a free e-file program. Taxpayers using this service receive their refunds in half the time as compared to returns filed by paper – even faster when tax refunds are deposited directly into a bank account.
COI also offers two self-help options through the Free File Alliance and other participating partners. Taxpayers may use any computer with internet access to electronically file their own tax returns.
Please call 518-828-4611 for more information, to schedule an appointment or to become a volunteer.
