Income Tax Filing Assistance (VITA)

free-tax-help1

Friendly House offers FREE tax preparation and online filing for low to moderate income taxpayers from the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.  Qualifications include family household earnings less than $60,000, valid social security numbers for all family members and investment income less than $2,650.  If married, taxpayers must file a joint return.  Iowa and Illinois taxpayers are eligible.

The focus will be on helping taxpayers benefit from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which provides taxpayers an average tax return of $1,500.  Friendly House, in cooperation with other participating Quad City agencies, hope to inform taxpayers of this credit, prepare their tax return, and file the return electronically for a speedy refund at no cost to the taxpayer. This service is provided through the VITA program, which is sponsored by the IRS.

The Friendly House site is open mid-January through mid-April.

You must call 563-355-9900 for an appointment.

Friendly House is always looking for volunteers to help with this program!  Please contact us if you are interested in being a VITA volunteer.
