FREE LAST MINUTE TAX HELP IN Williamsburg

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program of Williamsburg is offering free, last-minute tax help at 306 South Henry Street Tuesdays through Thursdays from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Saturdays 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The service is courtesy of the IRS' Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. VITA provides free basic income tax return preparation to qualified individuals in local communities. IRS-certified volunteers are on hand to inform taxpayers about tax credits for which they may qualify, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Credit for the Elderly.

"We'll generally help people whose incomes are $54,000 or less to prepare their federal and state income tax returns and provide free electronic filing," said Dave Lehnertz.
