Free Tax Time Resources

Tax time is one of our great opportunities to jump start our financial plans.  If you are participating in the 52 week savings challenge, our refunds may be just the ticket to seed our financial plans.  One way we can make the most of our tax refund is by finding ways to have our taxes prepared for free, whether we prepare them ourselves or if we use one of the locations around the area that offer free tax preparation or assistance to help us prepare our own.

When you are looking for resources at tax time we encourage you to check out all the great help available at www.vbgov.com/eitc.  This site has great information about some of the credits that may be yours at tax time, but also free software to prepare your own taxes and locations for free tax preparation.

Average cost of preparing a tax return is nearly $250.  $250 is a lot of money when we are gaining financial control and pinching pennies.  By saving the cost of tax preparation, we give ourselves a financial boost that can seed our financial plans.

Preparing your own return doesn't have to be as scary as we think.  The Department of Human Services hosts IRS trained and certified volunteers to assist you in preparing your own taxes.  You have all the help you need.  Just visit 3432 Virginia Beach Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA any Friday during the month of February from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm!
