VITA Tax Help

VITA Tax Help

Free tax help and filing for qualifying individuals and families is offered by VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) through Johnson County Social Services.

There are 2 ways to use their service:

Option 1: Schedule an appointment to have your tax return completed by an IRS-certified tax preparer at the library while you sit with them.

Option 2: Use VITA's software to prepare and file your own federal and state tax returns online for FREE anytime, anywhere if your household income was less than $79,000 in 2023. Email fileforfree@johnsoncountyiowa.gov to get access to the tax software. For in-person assistance while you use the software, stop by one of the drop-in events listed below.

The drop-in sessions are February 10 - April 13, 2024 on Mondays 2 - 8pm and Saturdays 11 - 5pm. Laptops will be available and IRS-certified tax preparers can help with questions and review your forms before they're filed electronically.
