Since VITA opened in 2009, it has completed 867 returns, and the numbers grow each year, said Phillippa Lewis Moss, director of the community service center.

“Families continue to look for ways to cut costs and make the most of their annual state and federal refund checks. Making an appointment will give each taxpayer the personal assistance they need to file an accurate return. The free tax preparation services are offered by IRS trained volunteers and are available to families with annual gross incomes up to $49,000.00,” Moss said.
