United Way of Bartholomew County is offering free tax assistance through the VITA Volunteer Tax Assistance program.
The program offers free tax filings to Bartholomew County residents who make $64,000 or less and meet other eligibility requirements. IRS-certified volunteers provide confidential and secure basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. Taxpayers may call 812-375-2216 to see if they qualify.
Income tax assistance appointments will be conducted through mid-April at Nexus Park. Reservations for a tax appointment will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Appointments can be made by calling 812-375-2216 anytime between 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Assistance is available by appointment only.
United Way has also partnered with two online companies for people to self-file. Tax Act is available for residents ages 20 to 58 with an income below $73,000 and to members of the military who make less than $73,000. OLT is available to residents who make $73,000 or less. Both of these online options are available by going to uwbarthco.org/taxes and clicking on their logos.
In 2022, The VITA Volunteer Tax Assistance program put over a million dollars back into the local economy by securing tax refunds and saving filing fees for residents. For more information, go to: www.uwbarthco.org/taxes.
