Tax Preparation Assistance Available at DSS

Posted on 01/27/16

January 27, 2016, Monroe, NC – The Union County Division of Social Services is scheduling appointments to assist taxpayers with the filing of their federal and state income tax returns. The agency’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is in its 12th year providing free tax preparation to individuals with gross incomes of $54,000 or less per year, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns.

Beginning Feb. 1, taxpayers will be served by volunteers who are certified through the Internal Revenue Service and have had extensive training and testing to ensure a quality return is prepared and submitted. DSS electronically files each tax return, and income refunds are usually direct deposited in the taxpayer’s banking institution within 7 -10 days.

The VITA site this year is at SPCC’s Center for Technology and Health Education at 3509 Old Charlotte Highway in Monroe. Appointment times are available each weekday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. However, there are days when appointments can be made as late as 6:30 p.m.

To schedule an appointment to have your taxes prepared at no cost, call 704-296-4312.
