Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) are programs we administer with the IRS to help individuals with low income and/or over the age of 60 prepare their state and federal income tax returns free of charge. Assistance is available from February 1 to April 15.

VITA program helps taxpayers with basic tax returns. The program specializes in assisting disabled taxpayers, those with low to limited income, and non-English speaking taxpayers.

TCE program provides free income tax assistance for middle- or low-income taxpayers, giving special attention to those aged 60 and older.
