COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM)-
that time of year again to get your paper work together and start filing taxes. If doing
your taxes yourself is something you do not feel comfortable with, the Chattahoochee Valley VITA Coalition can help.
VITA, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, has
been active in the valley for about 8 years.
program's goal is to help families that make under $51,000 a year prepare
their taxes for free.
Lerone Harper, with the Consumer Credit Counseling Service, explains why everyone who
qualifies should take advantage of this free service. "I think it's something that
people should take advantage of because we not only prepare your
taxes as a coalition, but we try to make sure that you have you have
your questions answered."
volunteers who help with your taxes are trained by the IRS. Just
last year they brought in over 3 million people right here in the valley.
