Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Do you take credit?
People

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $53,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

SUNY Canton students will partner with members of the university’s Financial Literacy Center to help low- and moderate-income members of the North Country community get every income tax refund dollar they are entitled to. This service is free to area students and is open to the public. The qualifying income bracket for participants is a gross income below $53,000.

The Financial Literacy Center members will plan to start booking appointments for the 2017 tax season after the new year.
