I use this service myself. Once again this year United Way will be supporting the VITA ( Volunteer Income Tax Assistance ) program. The VITA program, through Forsyth Working Families Partnership, is designed to help low income families save on tax preparation fees as well as to maximize their refund particularly by utilizing the Earned Income Tax Credit where possible. This program is open to families with incomes of $53000 or less ( $60000 if filing single).
There will be a Launch Party on Thursday, January 22 at The Old Winston Social Club on Burke Street in Winston-Salem to kickoff this year’s program and answer any questions you might have.
To see a full listing of sites/times where tax assistance can be secured for free, go here. This is a program in Forsyth County, NC.
To see more locations for free tax preparations in the Piedmont Triad, see this blog post from 2013. The information on that post was accurate as of date written. There are phone numbers included for most locations; please verify current times and locations on your own.
You can file your taxes at these locations beginning February 2nd.
