Free Income Tax Prep


The IRS-certified Sewanee Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program will begin processing and filing qualifying residents’ income taxes.
Any resident of Franklin, Grundy, or Marion counties who makes less than $55,000 a year qualifies for a free tax return.
Each resident interested in filing must bring proof of identification (a photo ID), social security cards (if filing jointly with another person then bring both social security cards and both individuals must be present), wage and earning statements (W-2, 1099, etc.), dividend and interest statements (if this applies to the resident filing), birth dates of the resident(s) and dependent(s), and banking account and routing numbers for direct deposit (found on a blank check).
If a resident filing does not have a social security card, then he/she must bring an IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) assignment letter.
