Do you need assistance preparing your 2018 income tax return? The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to working students, senior citizens, people with disabilities and households that earned less than $55,000 in 2018. No appointment is needed, but in order to get the most out of this program, please come prepared and bring the following:

  • Health insurance information, including form 1095
  • Social Security cards for yourself, your spouse and each of your children
  • Any 2018 tax forms or “tax label” postcards
  • 2018 W-2 wage and earnings statements from each employer
  • A copy of your 2017 tax return
  • Any other information about your 2018 earnings, including 1099-G forms stating unemployment
  • Insurance or interest forms (1099-INT) or dividend forms (1099-DIV), as applicable
  • Information on child care expenses
  • Information on other expenses that may reduce your taxes (mortgage interest, union dues, car registration fees, medical expenses or school expenses)
  • Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP) forms from your landlord
  • Statement of property taxes if you are a homeowner

Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to get your taxes done correctly and on time for free. This program is made possible through the Metropolitan State University College of Management and the Institute for Community Engagement and Scholarship.
