Free Tax Assistance Program Starts in February
Habitat Cabarrus has partnered with Community Link to offer the VITA program here in Cabarrus County for the first time!
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who made $55,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.
Habitat Cabarrus will be a VITA site location for the 2019 Tax Season from 2/9/18-4/9/18. We will operate every Monday evening from 5:30pm-8:00pm and 2nd and 4th Saturdays 10:00am-2pm during those dates.
