2020 TAX SEASON IS COMING!
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $66,000 or less, persons with disabilities, and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, and can even be located in your agency’s/organization’s office.
Even though taxes for most taxpayers are due by April 15, 2021, you can e-file (electronically file) your taxes earlier. The IRS likely will begin accepting electronic returns anywhere between Jan. 15 and Feb. 1, 2021. The IRS will announce on its website before the end of 2020 when exactly you can file.
If you received an Economic Impact Payment in 2020 (also known as a stimulus payment) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), it will affect how much you owe in taxes for the 2020 tax year. These stimulus payments were advance payments of refundable tax credits from individual 2020 tax returns.
