FOR TAXPAYERS

Cville Tax Aid provides free tax preparation assistance and promotes the use of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other credits for eligible taxpayers. If your household makes less than $55,000 a year, you qualify for free tax filing with an IRS-certified tax preparer.

Free tax preparation assistance for the 2018 tax season will be available January 31-April 17, 2018 through Cville Tax Aid. There will be eleven tax sites operated by the coalition in Charlottesville and Albemarle, Greene, Fluvanna, Louisa and Nelson counties.

FOR VOLUNTEERS

Email Barbara Hutchinson at bhutchinson@unitedwaytja.org to Join our Cville Tax Aid volunteer team today! Training is easy, hours are flexible, and no prior experience necessary! This tax preparation program provides a vital service to many low-income families in our community while offering a wonderful community service experience.

Individual agency efforts to promote the Earned Income Tax Credit in the Thomas Jefferson Area have been in place for many years. In 2007, Virginia Delegate David J. Toscano initiated a local coalition to coordinate efforts and reach all community members eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Community agencies, businesses, and local government are all part of the coalition.

Partners of the Cville Tax Aid Coalition provide:

  • Free tax preparation for eligible taxpayers through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
  • Education and outreach to share information about how to claim the earned income tax credit and where to get free tax preparation assistance.
  • Employer outreach and education about the earned income tax credit and other financial education programs.
  • Financial education including budgeting, credit scores and banking.
  • Preview the IRS training materials.
