Free tax preparation and e-filing for seniors and those with low incomes

Thursday, January 12, 2017

 

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) trained and certified volunteers at thousands of Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (VITA and TCE) sites nationwide offer free tax preparation and e-filing. VITA offers free tax return preparation to taxpayers who earn $54,000 or less. The TCE program is mainly for people age 60 or older and focuses on tax issues unique to seniors. AARP participates in the TCE program and helps taxpayers with low to moderate incomes.

  • To find the closest VITA site, visit IRS.gov and search the word “VITA.” Or  download the IRS2Go app on a smart phone. Site information is also available by calling the IRS at 800-906-9887.
  • To locate the nearest AARP Tax-Aide site, visit aarp.org, or call 888-227-7669.

There are also VITA and TCE sites that provide bilingual help for taxpayers who have limited English skills.
