VITA Program offers Free Tax Filing and Preparation Services at NCC

Norwalk Community College’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is again offering free tax prep and filing services for taxpayers earning $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities, and taxpayers with limited English proficiency who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.

Through April 18, you can get help from Internal Revenue Service-certified Norwalk Community College volunteers at VITA sessions held on campus.

Volunteers will help determine if you quality for a refund or tax credits—such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit and other credits. There is also a State of Connecticut Earned Income Tax Credit available for qualifying taxpayers.

Tax returns will be prepared on a walk-in basis only; no appointments will be taken. VITA sessions will be held on the following dates:

Saturdays, through April 8, 2017
10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
NCC West Campus Rooms W138 and W140

Tuesdays and Thursdays, through April 18, 2017
7 to 9:30 p.m.
NCC West Campus Room W138

For information on what documents and information to bring, go to the Internal Revenue Service website at www.irs.gov and search “Free Tax Return Preparation for You by Volunteers.”
