MACON, Georgia (41NBC / WMGT) – United Way of Central Georgia offers free tax returns for people on middle to low incomes.
Where you can go
All centers are open until April 15th.
- Centenary United Methodist Church (by appointment only): Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Family Investment Center (by appointment only): Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
- GA VECTR Center (by appointment only, military): Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Volunteers who submit the free tax returns are IRS trained and certified.
George McCanless, president and CEO of United Way Central Georgia, says the volunteers are helping people get tax credits they might otherwise have missed.
“So many people go to these paid preparers who sometimes aren’t trained as they should be, and the individuals don’t get all of the prints they make,” McCanless said.
You also have the option to submit your taxes for free through MyFreeTaxes.Com. There is no income limit for using the service.
