Free tax assistance for low-income families coming to Incline Village

Staff report

Starting Wednesday, Jan 27, and running through tax day, April 15, Tahoe Family Solutions will sponsor a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-profit Center in Incline Village.

VITA is an IRS-sponsored service that offers free preparation of federal and California tax returns for households with income under $54,000. Tax returns are prepared by volunteers who are trained and certified by the IRS.

The VITA site will be open to prepare tax returns every Wednesday and Thursday from 4-8 p.m. and one Saturday a month. Bilingual tax preparation services will be available. To make an appointment, call Nayeli at 775-298-0004.

TFS is a nonprofit organization offering low/no cost services to children and families with a mission to provide key resources and enhance skills for families in Incline Village and the Lake Tahoe Basin.

The VITA program — which has become an annual offering from TFS — supports that mission by helping families obtain all of the tax credits and refunds that are available to them, without having to pay extra fees to get their taxes done.

For more information or to express an interest in volunteering, contact Leslie Blunden, the volunteer Site Coordinator, at 775-298-0204 or via e-mail at leslieb@tahoefamily.org.
