Free Tax Preparation
We are pleased to announce our partnership with the IRS and the VITA Program. We are authoring a pilot program between the IRS and the VA at the VA Northport, NY, medical facility. Stand by for times and locations in 2014.
Through the IRS’ VITA program, you can take advantage of one of the options below that fits you best-with the easiest being to click through on the MyFreeTaxes link below.
Going to a VITA site allows you to have face-to-face tax preparation with an IRS-certified volunteer or you can use the self preparation service where you prepare and file your own tax return with access to an IRS-certified volunteer if you have questions. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations. To find a VITA location near you that offers the do-it-yourself option (self preparation) or face-to-face tax preparation, go to Find a Location for Free Tax Prep.
If you are the type of person that is interested in free on-line tax preparation without going to a VITA site, you have several choices to prepare taxes for free from home, work, or anywhere with access to the internet. Software companies make their products available through public-private partnerships with the IRS. Free federal tax preparation and e-file options are available for all taxpayers. However, each participating company sets its own eligibility requirements and not all taxpayers will qualify for all companies. Review all the choices at IRS FreeFile and MyFreeTaxes.
