tax assistance

Do you find your federal and state income taxes difficult or costly to prepare? We are here to help. In fact, we prepared 3,500 tax returns last year for people in mid-Tennessee as a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) super site. Our program prepares taxes on a first come, first serve basis for qualified people, free of charge.

VITA free tax preparation is for taxpayers who:

  • Generally make $58,000 or less per year
