Volunteer Income Tax Assistance/Tax Counseling for the Elderly (VITA/TCE)

Español

Get free tax preparation assistance

The VITA and TCE volunteer programs provide free assistance to individuals with limited income and/or over the age of 60 who need help in completing simple federal and state income tax returns. Assistance is limited to full-year residents because nonresident and part-year resident returns can be complex.

Assistance is generally available from February 1 through April 15th. The VITA program specializes in assisting disabled taxpayers, those with low to limited income, and non-English speaking taxpayers.

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