The VITA Program offers free tax help to low- to moderate-income (generally, $49,000 and below) individuals and families. Certified volunteers sponsored by various organizations receive training to help prepare basic tax returns in communities across the country. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations.
Trained community volunteers may help with special credits, such as Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly or the Disabled. In addition to free tax return preparation assistance, most sites also offer free electronic filing (e-filing). Individuals taking advantage of the e-file program will receive their refunds in half the time compared to returns filed on paper – even faster when tax refunds are deposited directly into one’s bank account.

A look back at all that we’ve accomplished this year. To all who support our programs, thank you!
All of the programs of Allen Neighborhood Center are made possible by the generous energy and involvement of our neighbors and community volunteers.
