The 2020 tax season for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) has been a very interesting one with some highs and lows. This year marks VITA’s 10th anniversary of providing free tax preparation in Tarrant County. GRACE has been a VITA site for almost every year since it began and is proud to be able to offer families a place to get their tax returns completed free of charge right here in northeast Tarrant County. This year, volunteers began completing tax returns on January 28th. When the Covid-19 mandates were put in place in March, VITA sites were closed to ensure the safety of volunteers and clients.
Currently, the VITA sites are expected to open again on or around June 1st. In the meantime, however, VITA is still finding ways to assist those that qualify for services. Currently, VITA is offering Taxes on the Go!
With Taxes to Go, VITA has opened free tax filing assistance via email now through July 15, 2020. This service is open to all qualifying families with a household income of $58,000 or less for the 2019 calendar year.
