Rodman Public Library will serve as a drop-off location for the United Way of Greater Stark County’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program.
Trained VITA volunteers help qualifying individuals file returns for free, looking for all possible deductions and credits. The free tax preparation service is available to households that earn less than $60,000 if filing single and under $90,000 if filing a joint return. Taxpayers with disabilities and those who speak limited English may also be eligible.
VITA is now taking appointments to check for eligibility schedule drop-offs in February through April for the 2021 tax return season. An appointment is needed for all drop-offs.
Due to pandemic restrictions, VITA interactions will be limited to drop-off only services this year. In-person appointments will not be available.
Those wishing to take advantage of the VITA program should visit uwstark.org./vita to download and print an IRS Intake Form and an IRS Consent Form. Both must be filled out so VITA volunteers can prepare and process your taxes. A list of other required documents is also posted on the website.
Those who would like more information about the VITA program or those wishing to make an appointment should call 330-994-VITA (8482).
