United Way, Citizens offer free tax prep
United Way and Citizens Bank have partnered with the IRS and AARP to offer free tax preparation through April 15. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program is underwritten by a $75,000 grant from the Citizens Bank Foundation.
VITA programs help families and individuals with low-to-moderate incomes. Trained volunteer tax preparers help individuals complete and electronically file their returns for free while also explaining any special credits and deductions available and how to claim them, including the earned income tax credit.
"Last year across New Hampshire and Vermont returns submitted through Granite United Way VITA partner sites amounted to over $5.7 million in income tax refunds for working families and individuals in our community, keeping those dollars in the local economy," said Patrick Tufts, president and CEO of Granite United Way, in a statement.
VITA sites will be open in Salem, Manchester, Concord, Peterborough, Franklin, Pittsfield, Laconia, Littleton, Portsmouth, Rochester and the Upper Valley.
For additional information or to schedule an appointment at a local VITA site, call 211.
