Union County Human Services is scheduling appointments to assist taxpayers with filing their federal and state income tax returns. Union County’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is in its 15th year providing free tax preparation to individuals who generally have an annual income of $56,000 or less per year, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.
Beginning Jan. 27, taxpayers will be served by volunteers who are certified through the Internal Revenue Service and have had extensive training and testing to ensure a quality return is prepared and submitted. Tax return preparers electronically file each tax return, and income refunds are usually direct deposited in the taxpayer’s banking institution within 7 -10 days.
The VITA site this year is located in the Human Services building at 2330 Concord Avenue in Monroe. Appointment times are available each weekday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. However, there are days when appointments can be made as late as 7 p.m.
To schedule an appointment to have your taxes prepared at no cost, call 704-296-4312.
