In cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service, CWC is one of the many Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites around the country. VITA volunteers assist low income, elderly, disabled, and non-English speaking taxpayers with their tax returns. The income limit is approximately $50,000 to qualify for the free service.
Taxpayers needing assistance should bring their 2011 tax package, all wage and earning statements (Form W-2), all interest statements (Form 1099), information for all deductions/credits, proof of account for direct deposit or refund (voided check), Social Security cards for dependents and/or spouse, birth date of all dependents and any other relevant information about income and expenses.
In addition to preparing individual returns, the volunteers will run a class to show participants how to E-file returns using tax software.
