VISTA and VITA

A tax refund is an opportunity to catch up on bills and start saving for the future. Many tax payers turn to free online tools to get their
Corinna VITA.jpgmaximum refund. But limited internet access and discomfort with computers put those resources out of reach for many.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites across the country offer free, in-person tax filing assistance to low and moderate-income families and individuals. Tax payers in Lexington can chose from many VITA tax sites, including one at the Parkside
Development. The site is co-managed by KEJC and the Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

In-person help allows people to ask IRS-certified volunteers questions about their returns. Tax payers can then use that knowledge to make informed decisions that maximize next year’s refund. As one of the few VITA sites with Spanish-speaking volunteers, the Parkside site is an invaluable resource for immigrant tax payers.

KEJC’s AmeriCorps VISTA will be at the Parkside tax site every Monday from 9-4 through April 16th. Interested tax payers are encouraged to make an appointment by texting (859) 320-7759.
