The Lowcountry VITA Coalition, in collaboration with the IRS, United Way of the Lowcountry, the Beaufort County Human Services Alliance, and other partner organizations, once again will provide free tax return preparation throughout Beaufort and Jasper Counties.
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, through their IRS-Certified Tax Preparers, assists with tax returns for people who generally make $60,000 or less ($120,000 filing jointly), differently abled persons, people 60 and older, and limited-English-speaking community residents.
VITA Coalition will offer services through April 2020 at the sites listed. Clients must bring a photo ID and social security card for every person on the tax return. For a full list of what to bring, visit irs.gov/Individuals/Checklist-for-Free-Tax-Return-Preparation.
