    VITA Tax Clinics are operated by IRS certified volunteers. Our ability to bring free tax preparation to low-income wage earners may depend on availability of volunteers and on weather conditions. During bad weather sites may be closed. Some sites require appointments for tax preparation services – please note those posting a phone number to call.

    VITA tax clinics generally assist those households with incomes below $54,000 for 2016. Tax clinics listed on the reverse are restricted to use by members / employees.
