Appointments Available Now !
Westminster, VT— Income-eligible Winsor and Windham County residents can now schedule an appointment for free tax preparation assistance through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, offered by SEVCA in collaboration with Granite United Way. SEVCA has experienced, IRS-certified volunteers trained and ready to prepare tax returns for area taxpayers with household income up to $54,000. Appointments are available in Westminster, White River Junction, and Windsor starting January 29 and continuing through the second week of April. Residents of nearby communities in New Hampshire may also make appointments at these sites.
VITA volunteers can help with special credits, such as the Earned Income Tax and the Affordable Care Act’s Premium Tax Credits. They also prepare Vermont income tax returns, property tax adjustments and renter’s rebate claims. In addition to free tax return assistance, VITA sites offer free electronic filing. Individuals taking advantage of the e-file program receive their refunds in half the time compared to returns filed on paper — even faster, when tax refunds are deposited directly into a bank account.
SEVCA will provide free tax assistance by appointment only at the following locations:
- SEVCA’s main office in Westminster on Tuesdays (daytime appointments)
- St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in White River Junction on Mondays
- Windsor Resource Connection Center on Thursdays
Appointments in Westminster can be made by calling 800-464-9951.
