What We Do

Tax Center

2020 Tax Season


Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) provides our neighbors with free tax preparation and financial literacy. The VITA program is operated by certified volunteers and allows our neighbors the opportunity to file tax returns, direct deposit their tax refund, and ensure proper tax credits are utilized.  We are able to do most returns.  We do have limitations and guidelines we must follow as an IRS VITA tax preparation site.  If you have questions you can call 479-246-0104 or email taxcenter@carecc.org.
