The Clearview Library District is offering complimentary tax preparation assistance at the Windsor-Severance Library Monday through Monday, April 5th to assist those who may need help with their taxes.
Free tax preparation assistance is offered to community members with incomes less than $ 57,000 or over 60 years of age. The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program is a national program between the Internal Revenue Service and non-profit organizations that offer this service.
Tax returns that can be prepared through the program are as follows:
- Form 1040 and Appendix 1, 2, 3 / Appendix A, B, D, EIC, R, limited Cs (no losses), E (royalties), K-1 (interest / dividends)
- Child and Care Expenditures, Child Tax Credit, Earned Income Credit, Education Credits, Refund Credits (Stimulus)
IRS certified volunteers complete tax preparation in the Clearview Library District by Realities Focus. Registration is required for first-time appointments as drop-ins are not allowed.
The VITA tax advisor plans second appointments for the participants to receive the completed declarations. COVID-19 security measures are taken for the face-to-face meetings.
“We believe that by hosting this program we are meeting a vital need within the community for accessible and affordable tax benefits,” said Jennifer Bradley, adult programming and collections librarian. “The VITA program enables our community members to get the help they need to ensure their taxes are filed properly and on time,” said Jennifer.
