FREE TAX ASSISTANCE FROM VITA PROGRAM
The Volunteers Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has been offering free tax services in the Los Angeles area for over 30 years. It’s a long standing partnership between the community, Internal Revenue Service and the Franchise Tax Board. Each January, community volunteers are given extensive training on the completion of the simple tax returns by IRS instructors. The volunteers then work at sites assisting taxpayers.
The taxpayers who take advantage of this free service are generally low income, students and elderly. The volunteers are trained in 1040EZ, 1040A and simple 1040 returns. They do not do prepare schedules such as C, D, E, or F. The California State return can also be completed at the site.
Some of the local places offering the free service are: West Covina BOE District Office at 1521 W. Cameron Ave, Suite 300, West Covina, (626) 480-7200, from now to April 10, 2017. And PACE El Monte at 111100 Valley Blvd., Suite 208 in El Monte, (213) 353-9400, from now to April 5, 2017. Please call first to make an appointment.
