Free Tax Assistance
Until Friday, April 10, the Cabrini College community and the local community are eligible for free tax preparation. Need help filing taxes? Know someone who does? Taxpayers with low to moderate incomes can take advantage of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), a program sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that helps people e-file their tax returns at no cost.
The returns are filed by the College's VITA site volunteers who have completed the IRS VITA certification exams. These volunteers can prepare returns for the Cabrini community and external community members.
