University of Maryland Extension


Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program

 2020 Free Tax Assistance

If your family made less than $56,000 in 2019 ($35,000 or less if an individual), you may qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit and FREE tax preparation. IRS-certified volunteers from nonprofit and public agencies will e-file your taxes. You can direct deposit your federal and state tax refund so it’ll be in your bank account, fast and safe!

University of Maryland Extension will not be hosting a VITA preparation site in College Park, MD in 2020. Please use the below information to make an appointment nearest you or contact the Montgomery County (MD) VITA Program directly with questions.
