The Greater Williamsburg Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program will again this year provide Free Tax Preparation and Electronic Filing (e-filing) services at four area locations during the upcoming tax season. This Free Service is available to all, though they hope to assist those for whom the cost of a paid preparer might be burdensome.
From February 1 through April 15, 2017, VITA volunteers, trained by the Internal Revenue Service, will complete and electronically file “while-you-wait” basic Federal and state income tax returns on a first-come, first-served basis at the following locations:
Mondays in FEBRUARY ONLY (Feb. 6, 13, 20 and 27) from 2-5:30 pm at Abram Frink Jr. Community Center, 8901 Pocahontas Trail (Highway 60 East)
Monday, FEBRUARY 6 and Monday, FEBRUARY 13 ONLY from 2-5:30 pm at James City County Recreation Center, 5301 Longhill Road, Room C
Tuesdays and Thursdays - 2-5:30 pm at Bruton Heights School Education Center, 301 First Street, Room 204
Wednesdays - 2-5:30 pm at James City County Recreation Center, 5301 Longhill Road, Room C
Saturdays - 9:30 am –1 pm at Quarterpath Recreation Center, 202 Quarterpath Road.
Filers should bring:
Year 2016 tax documents, including wage and earnings statements (W2s and 1099s), receipts for deductions; a driver’s license or other government-issued picture ID; taxpayer and dependent Social Security cards; bank account routing information if e-filing, and any other relevant information about income, expenses and deductions. Please note that preparers will be using new IRS-provided software this year. Access to prior year returns will not be available which requires taxpayers to bring a copy of their 2015 Federal and State returns.
