Coming soon - Free income tax preparation

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Center for Family Prosperity under the Gainesville-Hall County Community Service Center will open the 2013 Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Site Wednesday, January 30.

Phillippa Lewis Moss, Director of the Community Service Center, said assistance will be available Wednesdays from 3:00pm-7:00 and Saturday, February 9 and February 23 from 8:00-5:00 through March 6 by appointment only.

Families continue to look for ways to cut costs and make the most of their annual state and federal refund checks. Making an appointment will give each taxpayer the personal assistance they need to file an accurate return. The free tax preparation services are offered by IRS trained volunteers and are available to families with annual gross incomes up to $49,000.00, Moss said.

Tax services will be offered at the Community Service Center at 430 Prior Street, S.E. in Gainesville. Call 770-503-3336 to make an appointment.

A complete list of documents needed for the appointment can be found at www.gainesville.org.
