Free tax filing help now available curbside
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, known as VITA, will offer free curbside service at three locations June 29-July 15 for Fort Worth residents who need help preparing their tax returns.
Curbside VITA to Go! is for taxpayers who make less than $58,000 per year and need to file or amend returns for 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016.
Taxpayers must call 817-392-5698 for a drop-off appointment at one of these locations:
- Mansfield Mission Center, 777 N. Walnut Creek Drive, Mansfield.
- Community Enrichment Center, 6250 N.E. Loop 820, North Richland Hills.
- Opening Doors for Women in Need, 3600 Horne St., Fort Worth.
Taxpayers must remain in their vehicles. Staff will copy documents, return the originals and contact taxpayers by phone when returns are ready to pick up later the same day.
The federal government has extended the IRS tax filing deadline to July 15 because of COVID-19.
VITA is an IRS-supported, free income tax preparation program for low- to moderate-income individuals and families.
