Get help filing your 2019 taxes
Most Americans dread tax season. It can be costly, confusing and complicated. But there’s some good news: there are fewer changes this time around.
If you need help preparing your taxes, you are in luck.
United Way of Greater Nashville and partner agencies have officially launched the 16th annual Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) free tax prep program, where IRS-certified volunteers offer free tax preparation services to individuals and families who earned $66,000 or less per household in 2019.
The volunteers help qualifying individuals receive important credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit or Child Tax Credit.
United Way is partnering to operate 24 VITA sites throughout Middle Tennessee. There will be eight locations in Davidson County, including Conexion Americas at 2195 Nolensville Road; Financial Independence Center at 302 Foster Ave.; St. Luke’s Community House at 5601 New York Ave.; and Woodbine Super Site at 635 Spence Lane.
For a full list of locations and times, see volunteerforvita.org/tax-site-listings.
Taxpayers may also file online at volunteerforvita.org.
Last year, United Way’s VITA volunteers completed 14,750 returns, helping taxpayers save more than $3.9 million in tax preparation fees and bringing more than $20 million in federal refunds back to the community.
