Free tax help available for low-income, elderly

 

      Low-income families, elderly and handicapped taxpayers can receive free income tax help during the tax season at Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites located throughout the state.

      The VITA program is co-sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service and the South Carolina Department of Revenue. Volunteers trained by the agencies will prepare basic state and federal income tax returns for taxpayers who cannot afford to pay for professional tax service. Many of the VITA tax sites offer electronic filing, meaning taxpayers can receive their state and federal tax refunds in two weeks or less.

      While some locations do require appointments, most do not and taxpayers are assisted on a first come – first served basis. Taxpayers should bring all W-2s, dependent information (such as Social Security numbers) and other important tax documents. Some waiting time may be necessary.

      Listed below are the state-wide VITA locations, available days, times and dates.
