Free Income Tax Preparation
The Campaign has provided free income tax preparation in Volusia and Flagler Counties over the last four years. IRS certified volunteers are trained to identify taxpayer’s eligibility for federal tax credits and to help low-to-moderate income workers file accurate tax returns.
Many taxpayers who are eligible for free tax preparation also are eligible for the EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit). EITC is one of the best anti-poverty programs offered by the federal government.
Over $6 million of EITC money goes unclaimed in Volusia/Flagler each year.
Free Tax Sites are open from January thru April each year. For locations, days and times, call 2-1-1.
