Tax Assistance

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

Orange County VITA is a program of the Volunteer Connect 55+ (VC 55+) volunteer program.   We provide free federal and state income tax preparation to eligible individuals with low-to-middle income, regardless of age or county of residence. We have completed our 2021 tax season for preparation of 2020 income taxes.  Information about our 2022 tax season will be available here beginning in January 2022. 

After the end of the tax season, we provide limited assistance with 2018 or 2019 returns as well as 2020 amendments.  Post-season services are available by appointment only and are limited to those who have used Orange County VITA services in the past 3 years.  For more information, please call 919-245-4240.

We welcome inquiries about volunteering with our VITA program throughout the year.   Volunteer orientations for our 2022 tax season will begin in October.  Please contact Jeanne Chamberlin at jchamberlin@orangecountync.gov for more information.
