Tax Assistance

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

VITA is an Orange County Volunteer Connect 55+ (VC 55+) volunteer program that provides FREE Federal and NC state income tax preparation to eligible individuals with low-to-moderate income, regardless of age or county of residence.  The IRS and NC Department of Revenue have extended the tax filing deadline to May 17.   

As Covid-19 continues to surge across the state and nation, we have made significant changes in our program in order to protect the health and safety of our volunteers and clients.  We are continuing to adapt our services in order in order to assist as many taxpayers as possible.

As of April 1, we have closed our Virtual VITA service and will provide only our DIY program and Drop-Off Services through May 6, 2021.   Unfortunately, we are not able to assist foreign students this year.  Click on each box below to learn more.
