Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) will file income taxes for low- to moderate income residents for no charge, beginning in February.
VITA is a team of IRS-certified tax preparers who can prepare your tax return and provide information about special tax credits for which you may qualify, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled.
The Monteagle-Sewanee VITA site will be located this year at the Church of the Holy Comforter, 16 First St., Monteagle. No appointment will be necessary; times for the program will be posted soon.
