Dozens of free IRS volunteer tax help sites are open in Connecticut to assist taxpayers in preparing basic tax returns. The volunteer sites help prepare basic tax returns for older taxpayers, people with disabilities, non-English speaking individuals, and other people who cannot afford professional assistance.
Tax volunteers may be found at convenient neighborhood sites, such as libraries, senior centers or college campuses.
Near Weston, volunteers will be at New Canaan Public Library, Fairfield Public Library and Norwalk Community College.
For information on these and other volunteer sites in the area, visit irs.gov and type VITA in the search box or call 800-906-9887.
“IRS Free File allows taxpayers earning $57,000 or less to e-file their tax returns for free through the IRS website, irs.gov/freefile,” said IRS Connecticut spokesperson Dianne Besunder. “E-file is fast, it’s free and it’s safe. Last year in Connecticut, 1.5 million returns were e-filed,” she said.
For Connecticut taxpayers who make more than $57,000 or who are comfortable preparing their own tax return, there is Free File Fillable Forms. It also must be accessed through irs.gov/freefile.
Free File Fillable Forms does basic math calculations.
