Tax Assistance

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

VITA is an Orange County Volunteer Connect 55+ (VC 55+) volunteer program that provides FREE Federal and NC state income tax preparation to eligible individuals with low-to-moderate income, regardless of age or county of residence.  The IRS has delayed the start of the 2021 tax season until February 12.   

As Covid-19 continues to surge across the state and nation, we have made significant changes in our program in order to protect the health and safety of our volunteers and clients.  As the environment changes over the coming months, we will continue to adapt in order to assist as many taxpayers as possible.

We have partnered with GetYourRefund.Org and TaxSlayer to provide two outstanding options for assistance without an in-person meeting. Click on each box below to learn more.
