Get Free Tax Prep Help

The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs offer free tax help for taxpayers who qualify.

The VITA Locater Tool provides up-to-date information on where you can get your taxes prepared for free. The locater tool will provide you with information such as the name of site, address, phone number, days and hours of operation (unless it is appointment only), and types of languages spoken including American Sign Language. In addition, the locater tool utilizes Google Maps to provide an accurate location.

The website is available all year. A few hundred sites offer free tax preparation year-round and thousands more listings will appear in January.

The IRS has an App called IRS2GO and the VITA Locater Tool is one of the features in this free App that is available for all smart phone users at iTunes or Google Play.
