2021 TAX SEASON IS HERE!
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to low- to moderate-income individuals and families. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. Tax season opens on Friday, February 12th, and closes on Thursday, April 15th.
Even though taxes for most taxpayers are due by April 15, 2021, you can e-file (electronically file) your taxes earlier. 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.
