Avondale Offers Free Tax Assistance

Avondale Offers Free Tax Assistance

The City of Avondale’s Neighborhood and Family Services Department, together with A New Leaf offers no cost tax preparation services to benefit individuals and families with low to moderate income. Services will be offered to the community every Tuesday and Saturday beginning January 23 at the Care1st Avondale Resource Center, until Saturday, April 17, 2017.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, known as VITA, offers IRS trained and certified volunteers to assist households that make less than $54,000 and need help processing their annual income tax returns. VITA sites not only offer free tax preparation, they also help taxpayers apply for benefits they may not be aware of such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, or EITC.

Tax Preparation assistance is available at Care1st Avondale Resource Center (328 W. Western Avenue, Avondale) on Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until April 17. No appointment necessary. Walk-in’s are welcomed.

•Social Security cards or IRS ITIN card or ITIN letter for all household members
